Seranthony Dominguez has been the best Clearwater Threshers starting pitcher this season. He has a power arm and is the ace of the staff.
But the 22-year-old had to take himself out of the game with an apparent injury after getting the first two batters out in the fifth inning in Saturday night’s game the against the Tampa Yankees at Spectrum Field.
Up until that point in the game, Dominguez had one of his best fastballs of the season ranging from 94-97 mph sitting at 96. His final strikeout was on a 94 mph fastball against the first batter in the fifth inning. In the game his previous fastballs for strikeouts were sitting at 96 mph except one on a 97 mph heater.
Watch his seven strikeouts HERE.
Dominguez has gone 3-0 in sixth starts and one relief appearance this season. He has seen an uptick in his strikeouts this season. In previous seasons at lower levels he averaged around a strikeout an inning. This season he has struck out 45 in 35.2 innings, tied for second in strikeouts in the FSL.
His 2.02 ERA is seventh in the FSL and his WHIP is the third lowest in the league at 1.04.
Dominguez has the highest average fastball velocity of the Threshers starters. Let’s hope he will be back in the rotation soon.
