Drey Jameson made his debut on Thursday as the No. 4 prospect in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ organization and No. 71 prospect in all of MLB.com’s prospect list. Little did he know that his debut would light up the entire Chase Field as he pitches a 7-inning 2-hitter against the San Diego Padres (78-66) in his first MLB start.

Drey Jameson definitely proved to be one of the top pitching prospects, giving out just two hits and one walk while striking out five for his first career win. Padres’ star trade deadline entry Juan Soto was his first career strikeout, looking on a 3-2 count for the second out of the ballgame.

“That was awesome,” Drey Jameson said. “I can’t really talk about it because I don’t really know what to say about it. It’s just an experience that not many people get to do and I’m going to cherish every moment of it.”

Drey Jameson showcased tremendous variations in his pitching, touching 98.9 mph on his debut day, “I was getting ahead of guys. That’s big,” Jameson added. “And when I did fall behind, I relied on the sinker to get a ground ball or soft contact, and it worked out well. Just commanding the zone and not getting behind guys helps a lot with letting other pitches feed off that.”

“It’s late in the season and I’ve been doing this for, you know, for a while, not at the big-league level, but at the end of the day, it’s just another game,” Drey Jameson continued over his confidence while pitching to MLB stars. “As long as I throw my pitches, and trust in my stuff, everything’s the same.”

“I mean there’s obviously a little bit of nerves and I have that in every game just because I’m stepping on the mound and competing but there was nothing outlandish or anything like that.” He indeed informed his coaches and teammates that he is one to be nervous on the big stage.
