Former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun pitcher Danny Farquhar is certainly making the most of his chance to close games for the Seattle Mariners.

The 26-year old right-hander, who had never earned a save in his Major League Baseball career prior to this month, is a perfect 5-for-5 in save opportunities in the month of August.

Farquhar, who inherited the Mariners closer role on August 3rd, after Tom Wilhemsen was taken out of that role, has allowed only two hits, with no walks, while recording eight strikeouts, without allowing a run in 5.1 innings of work.

To make his stretch even more impressive, Farquhar has a 0.38 WHIP, and has only thrown 55 pitchers to 15 hitters during that span, which is an average of less than four pitches for every hitter he’s faced.

The Pembroke Pines, Florida native was drafted in the 10th round of the 2008 MLB Amateur Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays.

After pitching in the Toronto system for two years, Farquhar was traded to the Oakland A’s in 2010, before being traded back to the Blue Jays in 2011, where he made his MLB debut in September of 2011, before designating for assignment in June of 2012.

The A’s then claimed Farquhar off waivers, before releasing him two weeks later.

The New York Yankees claimed Farquhar on June 26 of 2012, before dealing him to the Mariners, approximately one month later, in a trade that sent Ichiro Suzuki to the Yankees.

Farquhar pitched for the Cajuns from 2006-2008, compiling a 15-12 record, along with 10 saves.
