Cheshire enters his first season with the Somerset Patriots and first in the Atlantic League. The 24 year-old righty spent the first two-plus years of his professional career in the Toronto Blue Jays organization. Most recently, Cheshire split his 14 relief appearances in 2019 between High-A Dunedin (four appearances), Double-A New Hampshire (six appearances) and Triple-A Buffalo (four appearances).
The Grand Rapids, Michigan native combined to post a 3-1 record with a 3.42 ERA and 15 strikeouts over 26.1 innings pitched across his combined 14 appearances this year. That includes a 2.16 ERA over 8.1 innings of work across his four appearances for Triple-A Buffalo. The side-arming righty also posted a 6-1 record with a 2.47 ERA and 45 strikeouts against 12 walks over 51.0 innings across 33 games (one start) with High-A Dunedin in 2018.
Cheshire carried a 2-0 record with a 1.48 ERA spread across 16 relief appearances between the Gulf-Coast Blue Jays and Rookie-level Bluefield in 2017 to begin his professional career.
The 6’1” reliever was originally a 36th round draft pick by the Blue Jays out of Davenport University in 2017. There, Cheshire still ranks as the program’s all-time saves leader (35), among ranking first all-time in appearances (126), strikeouts (224), and lowest opponent batting average (.224, minimum 150 IP). Cheshire also ranks second in program history in ERA (2.22, minimum 150 IP), walks/nine innings (1.91) and innings (254.1), and ranks fourth in wins (18).
He owns an 11-2 record with a 2.48 ERA over his three professional seasons.
