Former Trinidad Trigger Eric Yardley excelling in Arizona Fall League
Eric Yardley was a reliever for the Triggers in 2013. Today, he is a rising star in the San Diego Padres' Minor League system and is pitching in the Arizona Fall League. Most of the participants were in AA or AAA ball last year; Yardley pitched for the High-A Lake Elsinore team.
Yardley is not just "in" the Fall League, but he is putting up some impressive numbers. As of today, the right-hander has appeared in seven games and pitched 8.1 innings. He record is 1-0, with three saves in those seven appearances. His team has won eight games total, so Yardley has a win or save in half of his team's wins. His ERA is 3.24 and his WHIP (Walks and Hits per Inning Pitched) is an outstanding 0.96. Those are impressive numbers, indeed.
The Triggers congratulate Eric and are pulling for him to move "up" in the Spring.
