For the 2019 Futures Game, he has been named to the National League team’s roster.
On July 28th, he and fellow prospect Simeon Woods-Richardson were traded to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for All-Star starting pitcher Marcus Stroman.
When the rosters were expanded in September, he was promoted to the majors and made his major league debut on September 7th against the Tampa Bay Rays.
He pitched well for 5 2/3 innings, walking three batters and striking out eight. He left with a 3-2 lead, but the bullpen couldn’t hold it, and he was given a no-decision.
He became the first pitcher in Blue Jays history to strike out the first seven batters in a game on June 24, 2021.
It came in a start against the Baltimore Orioles, and while it wasn’t the most polished of performances (he stranded the bases loaded in both the first and second innings), he still managed to pitch five scoreless innings and earn his first win of the season as the Blue Jays defeated the Orioles 9-0.
He was filling in for Steven Matz, who was still out due to a positive COVID-19 test earlier that month.
