Nate Pearson was injured again in spring training in 2021, and he began the season with the displaced Buffalo Bisons in AAA.
He was called up to make a spot start for Toronto on May 9th, but it didn’t go well as he gave up three runs in two and a third innings on four hits and five walks.
He was held responsible for the Astros’ 7-4 loss. He returned to Buffalo and battled before being placed on the injured list for the second time.
Meanwhile, he was passed on the Jays’ depth chart by Alek Manoah, who threw exceptionally well after being brought up to Toronto and earned a spot in the starting rotation.
He was in the bullpen when he returned to Buffalo, and he threw well enough to be one of two players promoted to the main league roster when it was expanded to 28 players on September 1st.
However, in his first relief appearance on September 3rd against the Oakland Athletics, he gave up two runs in one inning and did not appear to be in great shape.
Two days later, he had a far better outing, striking out the side to seal an 8-0 victory.
