Jonathan Loáisiga is the younger brother of minor leaguer Mike Loáisiga and the son of Nicaraguan national team outfielder Stanley Loáisiga.
The San Francisco Giants signed him in September of 2012. In 2013, he had a fantastic season with the DSL Giants, going 8-1 with a 2.75 ERA in 13 starts, but he missed the next two seasons and was released in September 2015.
He was signed by the New York Yankees in early 2016, but after one game with the Charleston RiverDogs on May 13th, he had Tommy John surgery and did not pitch again until late June 2017.
Prior to his injury, he had performed admirably for the Nicaraguan national team in the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers.
Jonathan was able to pitch in earnest with three teams in 2017, the GCL Yankees East, the GCL Yankees West, and the Staten Island Yankees, following those numerous career breaks.
In 11 starts, he went 1-1 with a 1.38 ERA and 32 2/3 innings pitched. No one anticipated him to ascend rapidly in 2018, given his limited experience, but he was outstanding with the Tampa Tarpons at the start of the season, going 3-0 with a 1.35 ERA in four starts, and he was promoted to the AA Trenton Thunder.
