Now it's just baseball for Garrett going forward.
"We're really happy with the end result," said player development director Jeff Graupe. "I'm really proud of how Amir handled himself the whole time. Even when he told us he's not sure, or going to St. John's or to Northridge, he was a pro about it."
Garrett is 6-6 with a 3.41 ERA in 23 starts for Class A Dayton this season. In 113 1/3 innings, he has allowed 98 hits and 42 walks with 101 strikeouts. Over his last 12 starts, Garrett has a 2.21 ERA.
"His second-half stats are right there with anybody in our system and anybody in Minor League baseball," Graupe said. "He is developing at a pretty accelerated rate."
