Forgotten pitching prospect Eric Pardinho has battled injury after injury where it was believed his career was over. This has all changed in 2024 as he makes a massive resurgence and the Blue Jays are taking notice.

Eric Pardinho, once a can't-miss pitching prospect in the #BlueJays system, has overcome a whole slew of injuries over the past few years and missed a ton of time. Now, he's back and has utterly dominated the opposition this year.

After two great seasons to start his career and holding the largest signing (1.4M) for a Brazilian born player at just 16 years old, he reached #5 in the prospect rankings for the Jays. In 2021, his 2nd season in the minors, he battled major injury setbacks, such as Tommy John Surgery.
A once promising prospect, tuned quickly into another forgotten name that wouldn't pan out. But 2024 has been a whole different story.
This is the pitch that Eric Pardinho hit 100 mph on, per the radar gun.

Pardinho has managed to make a big comeback and is currently having the best season of his career. He has a 1.14 ERA , 0.97 WHIP, and has only given up three earned runs and 32 strikeouts in just 23.2 innings of work in Double-A.
Once a starter, he has found his groove coming out of the bullpen, and the Jays are taking notice and may call him up sooner than later.
Oh yeah.. he is still only 23 years old.
