The 2019 season will mark Fallwell's 4th season in professional baseball and 2nd with the Explorers
Fallwell had been an incredibly reliable arm out of the bullpen for the Sioux City Explorers during the 2018 season. He was third on the team in appearances out of the bullpen with 23, along with a 2-1 record and a microscopic 0.64 ERA which ranked second on the team. Fallwell also picked up two saves for the Explorers this season and at one point during the season did not allow an earned run in 13.1 straight innings pitched, stretching over 10 appearances from May 30th to June 30th. Through 28 innings this season Fallwell allowed just 18 hits, struck out 33 and walked only 12 while opponents batted a mere .188 off of him.
Fallwell’s 2018 American Association contract would be bought out by the Philadelphia Phillies organization on July 16th. He would play for their A ball club the Lakewood Blueclaws. There he posted a 6.75 ERA over 12 appearances and 21.1 innings and walked just 6 batters in his time with Lakewood.
During these past winter months, Fallwell took his talents down under as he pitched for the Melbourne Aces of the Australian Baseball League. While there he dominated not allowing a single run over 14 innings. In fact he allowed only 8 of the 50 batters he faced to reach while also picking up 3 saves. Fallwell went on to punch out 17 hitters good for a K/9 of 10.9.
Fallwell was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 19th round of the 2016 MLB Draft from Cochise Community College (Douglas, AZ). Fallwell spent the last two seasons playing in the Royals organization, making it to Single-A last season. In rookie ball for the Royals, the righty owned a 2.35 ERA with 23 strikeouts in 15.1 innings pitched.
Fallwell played collegiately for two seasons at Cochise Community College where he went 6-4 with a 2.87 ERA, accumulating 103 strikeouts in 84.2 innings pitched. In 2016, Fallwell put together a scoreless streak that reached 30 consecutive innings which propelled him into being named an All-ACCAC First Team and a First Team All-Region selection. The righty had committed to continue his collegiate career at the University of Houston before being drafted and signing with the Royals.
