Corbeille - TORONTO (AP) — While Major League Baseball no longer
has a single player who was active during the previous century Matt Carpenter Jersey , it now has its first player born in this one.Blue Jays right-hander Elvis Luciano became the youngest pitcher in Toronto history when he debuted Sunday against the Detroit Tigers. Luciano, who turned 19 on Feb. 15, allowed one hit in 1 1/3 scoreless innings.“I feel very good about it and very proud of myself,” Luciano said through a translator. “I wasn’t nervous at all. I was anxious because I really wanted to do the best I could for the team.”Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo was impressed with Luciano’s performance, especially a fastball that reached 96 mph.“Just to pitch in that moment, in that situation, that shows you a lot,” Montoyo said after his team lost 4-3 in 11 innings. “For sure he’s not nervous. He’s got the stuff to compete in the big leagues.”Pitching with runners at the corners and two outs in the seventh, Luciano retired the first batter he faced, Nicholas Castellanos, on a fly to center.“Good fastball,” Castellanos said. “He came right at me — he wasn’t shy. He did his job and got me out. Hopefully if he has a 20-year major league career, I can say that I was the first guy he ever got out.”Luciano got slugger Miguel Cabrera on a fly ball to the wall in left field for his first out of the eighth.“That was a ‘wow’ right there,” Luciano said. “When I was 12 years old , Cabrera was my favorite player. I used to be an infielder and when I saw him, when I knew that I was going to face him, that was the proudest moment of the entire day for me.”Niko Goodrum’s one-out double was the only hit off Luciano.“I was just trying to get a heater,” Goodrum said. “He has a good arm.”The Blue Jays got Luciano from Kansas City in the Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings last December. He hadn’t pitched above rookie ball in two minor league seasons before this year.Adrian Beltre and Bartolo Colon were the final two big leaguers who were active in the last century, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.Brian Milner is the youngest player in Blue Jays history. The catcher was 18 years and 218 days old when he debuted with Toronto against Cleveland in June 1978.

He walked the second batter he faced, allowed an infield single, then ran a three-ball count on Matt Davidson before striking him out. A single down the right-field line by Hunter Pence made it 1-0 Rangers.But the Cubs got the run back in the bottom of the first. After Delino DeShields made a nice diving catch on a Ben Zobrist line drive (and I still can’t get used to that being the son of the guy who played for the Cubs Lou Brock Jersey , it seems like just yesterday), Kris Bryant was hit by a pitch and Anthony Rizzo walked.One out later, Kyle Schwarber drove in Bryant:And then Darvish settled down. He allowed just three more baserunners, a double just out of the reach of Bryant, a hit batter and a walk before being removed one batter into the fifth inning. Darvish struck out five and the only real complaint I had about his outing was that he was working very slowly. We aren’t (apparently) going to have a pitch clock, but it had expired numerous times on him before he delivered the ball. Darvish was better in his last outing, I thought, when he worked faster. His velocity was good again in this game, sitting mainly at 94-95.And Cubs relievers Brian Duensing, Brandon Kintzler, Duane Underwood Jr., Rowan Wick and James Norwood combined for five shutout innings, with one hit and three walks allowed, and five strikeouts. Granted Ken Boyer Jersey , much of this was against Rangers minor leaguers.In the bottom of the eighth, Zack Short walked with one out. He stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error, bringing up Court:The sac fly put the Cubs ahead, and Norwood entered to throw the ninth. As he did last year, Norwood threw at an easy 97 miles per hour. He struck out the first batter he faced, then issued a walk to Rangers minor leaguer Yonny Hernandez. Hernandez took off for second. Francisco Arcia, who had replaced Willson Contreras in the eighth, made a high throw — but Nico Hoerner, again subbing in a major-league spring game, put a very impressive tag down for the out. Seems every time Hoerner’s in a game he makes something happen. Even before the game, Theo Epstein seemed impressed with Hoerner:That’s definitely impressive considering Hoerner’s professional experience consisted, prior to this spring, of 14 games at Low-A South Bend before he was injured, and 21 games in the Arizona Fall League. You can see that maturity and presence every time he takes the field with the big leaguers. It’s not impossible we could see him in the big leagues later this year.One other thing to note: Wick threw a solid inning , striking out a pair and throwing at 95 most of the time. Like Norwood, he’s an Iowa Shuttle kind of guy this year and could help the big-league team.Attendance watch: On a day when it was chilly in the shade but pleasant in the sun, 14,599 paid to see this game. That makes the Cubs’ total for 11 dates 144,295, or 13,118 per date. The coolish weather led to the unusual occurrence of a warmer temperature in Chicago than in Mesa:Friday, the Cubs travel to Glendale to face the White Sox. Cole Hamels gets the start for the Cubs and Lucas Giolito will go for the Sox. At last, there’s a TV game. It will be on WGN, with the Sox announcers. There will be a Cubs radio broadcast on 670 The Score.
