Today represents the two-week mark since the Arizona Fall League began, and the Blue Jays have a total of eight prospects (four pitchers and four position players) playing for the Phoenix Desert Dogs. Yesterday was a good day for Jays prospects, as Adeiny Hechavarria went 4-for-4 with three triples and four RBIS, Anthony Gose went 0-for-5 but added an outfield assist, Kevin Ahrens went 1-for-4, and Aaron Loup tossed 1.2 innings of scoreless relief.
The sample sizes are all small, but here’s a look at how the Jays prospects have fared so far. Out of the group, it’ll be interesting to see how Chad Beck does as he could compete for a spot in the Jays’ bullpen out of spring training.
