Deck McGuire, who is starting at Double-A for the third consecutive season, pitched into the sixth inning for the Fisher Cats and gave up only one unearned run (off an infield single). According to the New Hampshire Union Leader, his 58 starts are the most in Fisher Cats’ club history. A.J. Jimenez led the offense with with two doubles and two RBIs before he was relieved for a pinch runner in the sixth. Brad Glenn, Gabe Jacobo and Yusuf Carter each collected doubles while Jon Berti cashed in two runs and stole a base. The Fisher Cats won 7-3.

The team who is probably the most exciting of the Blue Jays’ affiliates to watch kicked off their minor league regular season with an 8-2 destruction of the Lake County Captains. Jairo Labourt and Alberto Tirado piggybacked on a cold night in Lansing and Tirado was especially impressive with seven strikeouts. D.J. Davis had two base hits (including a double), stole two bases and drove in two runs. Mitch Nay also collected a couple of hits with a double and two RBIs while catcher Jorge Saez was the third member of the two hit, one double, two ribby club for the Lugnuts last night.

    I’m really pulling for Davis and Pompey!

  • Jensan

    Michael,

    What positions does Jorge Saez and Jason Leblebijian? Dickie Thon junior is playing 2B?

    • http://jaysjournal.com/ Michael Wray

      Saez is catcher, Leb plays all over the infield but usually finds himself at the corners (yesterday he DH’d) and yep Thon is playing 2B

  • Jensan

    Do you of these prospects have potential to move to or past Triple AAA BALL?

    • http://jaysjournal.com/ Michael Wray

      Jimenez, Burns, Stroman, Nolin, Stilson could all realistically see the majors this year. I’m definitely keeping an eye on Nay, Davis, Pompey, Lugo, Smith Jr., Boyd, Guerrero and basically the entire Lugnuts pitching staff (some other guys I’m probably missing). Saez and Leb are probably org guys but Thon is still enough of a prospect to think if he can stay on the field he could eventually play at the highest level.
