Cristian Javier doesn’t get enough credit for owning the league Some of the worst shit ever. I attribute it to him having players all over the rotation, but Javier is disgusting.

Michael Schwab @michaelschwab13 Christian Javier has ace material.

Dave Uram @MrUram

The Phillies have no answer for Christian Javier. They were missing the battable fastball and didn’t make a significant contact on anything.

Do you know what is crazy? Javier leads the minor leagues in 2019 with a .130 AVG.

This is the lowest AVG I could find for a qualified MiLB pitcher – 0.022! –

𝐅𝐑𝐀𝐍𝐊𝐈𝐄  @FrankiesTwoLoud

Many nations are learning Christian Javier tonight…ace

With a staff that includes AL Cy Young Award candidates Justin Verlander and Framber Valdez, Javier is a bit of a forgotten man in Houston’s rotation. However, he showed the potential to be the ace of any pitcher in the major leagues.

Javier tied with Valdez for 194 regular-season strikeouts (nearly 54 fewer innings) ), he also started a no-hitter on June 25 against the New York Yankees.

Wednesday’s game was a star show for Javier and a series saver for the Astros Contest. Teams are now guaranteed to play at least one more game at home.

Houston will maintain momentum in Game 5 on Thursday at Citizens Bank Park.
