COUNTING DOWN: The Best Yankee At Each Uniform Numbers (#83)

By Paul Semendinger



Deivi Garcia has a chance to be one of the great ones.

Electric stuff, poise, and ability, the sky is the limit for Deivi Garcia.

He is the greatest (and only) Yankee player to ever wear #83.

To date, Garcia has pitched all of 34.1 Major League innings. He has allowed 35 hits. His ERA is 4.98. None of that is great, BUT…

Look at these numbers: 33 and 6. Those numbers speak to what the Yankees might have on their hands.

In his short big league career, Deivi Garcia has struck out 33 batters and walked only 6. I like that percentage. I like it. A lot.

I am hoping for big things out of Deivi Garcia. Great things. Wonderful things.

I am hoping that when my grandchildren are running this blog they write, “Hall-of-Famer Deivi Garcia was, of course, the greatest (and only) Yankees’ player to ever wear #83.”

(Well, a man can hope… right?)

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
