EDMONTON, AB – Another Edmontonian has found a home at the big-league level, as former Edmonton Prospects pitcher Edgar Barclay was selected by the New York Yankees in the 15th round (465th overall) of the 2019 MLB Entry Draft.

“Edgar was our go-to guy on the mound last season, and (he’s) obviously very talented,” said Prospects head coach Jordan Blundell. “He brought a poised and composed demeanour to the mound every time he pitched.  He was a pleasure to have on the ballclub and we wish him the best on his baseball journey moving forward.”

Last season at California State University at Bakersfield, the Hilo, Hawaii native was a force to be reckoned with. In just over 90 innings pitched, Barclay put up a massive 111 strikeouts with a 3.69 ERA.

In his only summer with the Prospects last year, Barclay was 1-1 with 29 strikeouts and a sparkling 1.97 ERA in just over 27 innings pitched. However, it was in last year’s postseason that Barclay truly shone. Through the playoffs, Barclay went undefeated in his two starts, registering 15 strikeouts in only 11.2 innings pitched.
