Scrolling through my Twitter list yesterday it seemed like everyone was talking about one thing – Baseball America’s 2013 League Top 20 Prospects Index.
I unfortunately don’t have time to get into any analysis but in case you were wondering here’s the players from the Toronto Blue Jays organization who made the list. Seven of the top 20 prospects in the 10-team Appalachian League came from the Bluefield Blue Jays and one of my favourites, Matthew Dean, didn’t even make the cut.
Gulf Coast League
5 – Franklin Barreto, SS
As I mentioned earlier, Twitter was quite abuzz with the news. Here’s some of the reaction:
BA's Top 20 Appalachian League prospects has 7 Blue Jays on it, the most of any team.

Surprised that Matt Dean isn't listed in BA's top 20 prospects in the Appy League.

@JaysFromAway I agree on Dean although I would have thought Tirado would be higher up. DeJong certainly has a higher upside at this point.
