The former ace of the Tiger staff  is handling the jump to HiA well, especially after seeing only 19 innings at Short-Season Eugene in 2017. After allowing five earned runs during his previous start, the 6′ 0″- 193 lb right-hander threw a one-hit shutout over six innings last evening.

  • Javier was on my International Watch list prior to the 2016 season. That season, the 6′ 1″- 170 lb righty made his United States debut gliding across three rookie levels. He logged a 2.29 ERA in 13 appearances (6 starts) along with 66 K’s in 51 innings. Over his last four starts, the Dominican Republic native has spun a 0.95 ERA with 35 strikeouts and only 2 walks in 19 innings, including a career-high 10 K’s on May 16th.
