Deivi Anderson Garcia is a Dominican professional baseball pitcher who now plays for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball. In 2020, he made his MLB debut.
Deivi, who was born on May 19, 1999 (age 22) in Bonao, Dominican Republic, is a pitcher for the New York Yankees.
He is the eldest of two brothers. Garcia was coached as a child by his father, who was a youth baseball coach. His mother, a doctor, gave up her work to raise their children.
Garcia got a $200,000 signing bonus with the New York Yankees in July 2015. Despite his past experience as an infielder and outfielder, the Yankees had him become a pitcher due to his throwing arm power.
Garcia was assigned to the Yankees’ alternate training facility to begin the 2020 season.
On August 30, he made his major league debut for the Yankees.
In a no-decision, he pitched six innings on 75 pitches, allowing four singles, one unearned run, no walks, and six strikeouts.
His record was 3–2 with a 4.98 ERA in six starts during the 2020 season and he was the opener for Game 2 of the American League Division Series in that season. Only lasted one and a half innings before he was replaced by J. A. Happ for a pinch-hitter.
