Prospect Profile - Daniel Farquhar, RP

Is Farquhar on his way to becoming the future closer of the Jays?

Daniel A. Farquhar is a 5'10" 170 lbs RHP that clearly intimidates hitters with his stuff, not with his stature. He was born in Pembroke Pines Florida in February 1987, and attended college in Lafayette Louisiana.

He was chosen in the 10th round of the 2008 draft, 309th overall, and had a successful 2008 in Auburn, then shortly in Lansing. His line was: 2-2, 15 GP, 32.1 IP, 31 Ks, 8 BB, 20 HA, 1.95 ERA, while hitters hit .180 against him. He only allowed 1 HR.

He was promoted in 2009 to Dunedin, where he has performed well above expectations. Through 11 outings for a total of 11 innings, Daniel sports a 0.00 ERA with 16 Ks, 7 BB, 5 HA, while hitters are hitting a mere .143 against him. Lefties have had an especially hard time against him while hitting .118. Daniel has obviously not blown a save this season and now has 6 saves to his credit. This amongst an impressive bullpen that also includes Alan Farina, Trystan Magunson, Robert Bell, and Tim Collins who are capable of closing as well.

If Daniel keeps his streak going, he will be tested to AA at the very least during the season. Either way, it seems that there is an endless supply of bullpen stars coming through the system, a critical element of winning that all Mets and Yankee fans will tell you can make or break your team. Here's to hoping he comes through the system successfully!
