Samuel Joseph Gaviglio (born May 22, 1990) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Seattle Mariners and Kansas City Royals. Prior to playing professionally, he played college baseball for the Oregon State Beavers.

Amateur career

Gaviglio attended Ashland High School in Ashland, Oregon, graduating in 2008. He starred for his school's baseball team in his senior year; Gaviglio pitched to a 13–0 win–loss record with an earned run average (ERA) below 0.60, led Ashland High to victory in the Oregon state championship game, and was named the Class 5A Pitcher of the Year.[1][2] The Tampa Bay Rays selected Gaviglio in the 40th round of the 2008 MLB draft, but he did not sign.[2]

Gaviglio enrolled at Oregon State University to play college baseball for the Oregon State Beavers baseball team. As a freshman, Gaviglio pitched to a 10–1 win-loss record and a 2.73 ERA,[2] and he was named a Freshman All-American.[3] His sophomore year was limited by an injured hamstring. In his junior year, Gaviglio began the season with a streak of ​41 23 scoreless innings pitched. He ended the season with a 12–2 win-loss record and a 1.87 ERA.[2] Gaviglio was named to the All-Pacific-10 Conference's first team, Louisville Slugger named him a second-team All-American,[3] and he was named a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award.[4]

Professional career

St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals selected Gaviglio in the fifth round, with the 170th overall selection, of the 2011 MLB draft.[2] He signed with the Cardinals, receiving a $175,000 signing bonus, rather than return to Oregon State for his senior year. He made his professional debut with the Batavia Muckdogs of the Class A-Short Season New York–Penn League.[4] In 2013, Gaviglio pitched for the Palm Beach Cardinals of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League, and had a 4–1 win–loss record and a 2.72 ERA in ​39 23 innings pitched.[1] He missed ​3 12 months of the 2013 season recovering from a right forearm strain. After the season, the Cardinals assigned him to the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League.[5]

In 2014, the Cardinals invited Gaviglio to spring training as a non-roster player.[1] Gaviglio pitched for the Springfield Cardinals of the Class AA Texas League, completing the season with a 5–12 win–loss record and a 4.28 ERA in ​136 23 innings pitched. While his season began with a 5.42 ERA in his first 14 games started, he finished the season with a 2.90 ERA in his final 11 games.[5]

Seattle Mariners

After the season, the Cardinals traded Gaviglio to the Seattle Mariners for Ty Kelly.[6] On May 11, 2017, he made his major league debut for the Mariners against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Kansas City Royals

On September 1, Gaviglio was claimed off waivers by the Kansas City Royals. He was added to the active roster for the rest of the season and pitched at a 3.00 ERA over 12 innings.[7]

Toronto Blue Jays

On March 21, 2018, Gaviglio was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays for cash considerations.[8] He was recalled by the Blue Jays on May 11. Gaviglio spent most of the season in the Blue Jays rotation, finishing with a 3–10 record over 24 starts and 2 relief appearances. He struck out 105 batters in ​123 23 innings.[9]
