Nathan Alexander Pearson is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Major League Baseball Toronto Blue Jays (MLB). He was born on born August 20, 1996.
Pearson was regarded as a top prospect in the 2017 Major League Baseball draft. The Toronto Blue Jays drafted him 28th overall and signed him on June 28 for a $2.45 million bonus. Pearson was sent to the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays’ Rookie-level 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 but opened the year on the disabled list with an oblique injury. He made his Florida State League debut on May 7 but left the game after being struck 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.
