Giants Vs. Blue Jays Lineups: Aramis Garcia Catching Shaun Anderson

Welcome to the Shaun Anderson era. The Giants top pitching prospect is making his MLB debut on Wednesday at Oracle Park against the Blue Jays. 

And he'll be throwing to a familiar face. 

Anderson's battery mate will be catcher Aramis Garcia. The two have worked together the past two seasons in Triple-A Sacramento together, and the familiarity should help ease the rookie right-hander into the big leagues. 

Over seven starts this season for Sacramento, Anderson was 2-1 with a 4.11 ERA in the extremely hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. He also had 37 strikeouts in 35 innings pitched.

The Giants acquired Anderson at the 2017 MLB trade deadline from the Red Sox for infielder Eduardo Nunez.
