Seranthony Domínguez has been on a long road to recovery, but there appears to finally be a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel for him.
After a dazzling rookie season in 2018, Domínguez began experiencing elbow issues in 2019. However, he didn’t get Tommy John surgery until a year later, so his time on the sidelines was longer than usual. He finally returned to the mound for one scoreless appearance last September.
Domínguez excelled in his spring training debut this week, earning praise from manager Joe Girardi. The 27-year-old pitcher also expressed confidence in himself, noting that he was glad to see his pitches touch 97 mph on the radar gun.
The Phillies made several additions to the bullpen in free agency, but they’re far from the most dominant pen in the league. Having Domínguez healthy and dominant again would be a game-changer.
