In this week’s look “Around the Farm” we take a look at the closer for the Single-A Dunedin Blue Jays, Connor Falkenbach.

Falkenback Falkenbach set a Dunedin record on Sunday collecting his 27th save of the season.  Overall this season for Dunedin the 6’0″ right-hander is 2-4 with a 3.77 ERA.  He also made seven appearances for Double-A New Hampshire but allowed 10 runs in just over eight innings.

It was the second straight season Falkenbach earned a promotion to New Hampshire but did not take advantage of the opportunity.  Last season he posted a 6-0 record with eight saves and a 1.94 ERA in 47 games with Class A Dunedin but allowed eight runs over nine innings in his seven appearances with Double A New Hampshire.

He was the Blue Jays 43rd round selection in the 2005 draft out of Florida where he was 3-3 with a 3.15 ERA and 9 saves in his senior year.  In his first professional season he was 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 2 saves in 10 appearances for Pulaski and also made two appearances for Lansing.
