Trivino and Mayza post outstanding peformances

Lou Trivino (Slippery Rock, Quakertown Blazers, 2011) and Tim Mayza (Millersville, Quakertown Blazers,2011) did not allow a run this spring and were nearly unhittable for the Oakland A’s and Toronto Blue Jays respectively.

Trivino only allowed one hit in seven relief appearances over 7 1/3 innings. The 6-5 RHP struck out eight with a save. His WHIP was 0.55 and opponents hit .043 against him. Trivino’s role may be as a potential multi-inning weapon out of the A’s bullpen.

Mayza is coming off Tommy John surgery in late 2019 and also allowed only one hit in seven appearances over 6 2/3 innings with a win. He struck out six while posting a 0.45 WHIP and opponent batting average of .048. Mayza may assume his prior role of the “go to lefty” out of the Blue Jays bullpen. In 2019 he topped the Blue Jays with 68 appearances.

On Tuesday LHP Tim Mayza (Millersville, Quakertown Blazers) made his first appearance since undergoing Tommy-John surgery as he tossed a scoreless inning in the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday. Mayza’s fastball was in the 94-95 MPH range while his slider was clocked at 88-89 MPH.

On Friday centerfielder Josh Palacios (Auburn, Staten Island Tide) posted five RBIs as the Blue Jays defeated the Baltimore Orioles 13-4. Palacios, a 4th round selection of the Blue Jays in the 2016 draft, posted a double, triple and home run in three at bats.

Outfielder Narciso Crook (Gloucester CC, Trenton Generals) has played in five games for the Cincinnati Reds this spring. Crook was a 23rd round selection of the Reds in the 2013 draft and entered pro ball at age 18.
