New Hampshire Fisher Cats News Release

MANCHESTER, NH – The New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, announced Monday that RHP C.J. Van Eyk (TOR No. 17, MLB Pipeline) is the Eastern League’s Pitcher of the Week for May 6 – May 12.

From Lutz, Florida, Van Eyk is New Hampshire’s first name to receive Eastern League honors since OF Will Robertson and LHP Jimmy Robbins swept the league’s Player/Pitcher of the Week for July 3-9, 2023.

Toronto’s 2020 2nd round selection out of Florida State, Van Eyk allowed one hit in a season-high five scoreless innings on May 10 against the Harrisburg Senators at Delta Dental Stadium. Van Eyk tossed 64 pitches (43 strikes) and struck out six to match his season-high, including four strikeouts against his first five batters faced.

In two appearances in May, Van Eyk has not allowed a run in eight innings of work behind eight strikeouts.

After missing all of 2022 and a majority of 2023 to injury, Van Eyk’s five-inning start on May 10 was his first for a Toronto affiliate since August 20, 2021 with High-A Vancouver.

The Fisher Cats are scheduled to play 69 home games in 2024 at Delta Dental Stadium. After New Hampshire’s upcoming series in Hartford against the Yard Goats, the Fisher Cats return to Delta Dental Stadium to host the Somerset Patriots in a seven-game series, beginning on Tuesday, May 21.

Fans can purchase multi-game memberships and single-game tickets at, via email at [email protected], by phone at (603) 641-2005, and in-person at the Fisher Cats box office on 1 Line Drive in Manchester.
