Nathan Alexander Pearson is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Major League Baseball Toronto Blue Jays (MLB).
Pearson was considered a first-round pick in the 2017 Major League Baseball draft. He was picked 28th overall by the Toronto Blue Jays and signed on June 28 for a $2.45 million bonuses. Pearson was assigned to the Rookie-level of the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays before being promoted to the Short Season-A Vancouver Canadians after making one start.
Pearson was assigned to the Advanced-A Dunedin Blue Jays to begin the 2018 season, however, he was sidelined with an oblique injury. On May 7, he made his Florida State League debut, but departed the game after being hit by a line drive in the second inning.
On July 29, 2020, Pearson made his MLB debut against Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals. The game was played in Washington despite being a home game for the Blue Jays, as the COVID-19 pandemic had forced the Blue Jays into Sahlen Field in Buffalo, which was not ready for use.
He went five innings, giving up two hits and two walks with five strikeouts, and surrendered no runs in his debut, though the Nationals won 4–0. With the 2020 Toronto Blue Jays, Pearson appeared in 5 games, compiling a 1–0 record with 6.00 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 18 innings pitched.
