SP Joel Carreno - Lansing Lugnuts

The Jays did have another SP that was very impressive on their GCL squad, so much so that they promoted him very quickly to Lansing in order to push his progression. RHP Joel Carreno was signed in 2004 (at 17) out of the Dominican Republic and was 2-0 with 12 Ks in 11 IP and only 1 ER in 2 games with Auburn. So the Jays promoted him and as of yet, he has not let them down. He has made 2 starts, pitched 11.1 innings with 10 Ks and only 3 walks, and 5 earned runs for a 3.97 ERA. He stands at 6'0" and 190 lbs and may be done growing, so will not be an imposing presence on the mound. He is only 22 and could become one to follow as he continues to prove himself in LoA ball.
