In our quest to interview some of the top farmhands in the Toronto Blue Jays system, we’ve had the opportunity in the last month or so to sit down with Matt Boyd, Dalton Pompey, and Kendall Graveman. All three were great interviews, were easy to talk to, and had great personalities.

However, Blue Jays #4 prospect Daniel Norris is a different cat altogether.

The epitomy of “easy-going”, Daniel Norris takes pride in his down to earth ways. He spent the first month of spring training living in his 1978 Volkswagen Westfalia van. He finds apt comparisons between pitching and his second love, surfing. Most importantly, he sees the value of working hard and the reward for putting the time in.

I had a chance to sit down and talk to the Blue Jays lefty about a number of things, from his perspective on life, his continued improvements, his electric start to the season at Dunedin (4-0, 0.72 ERA, 10.7 K/9), and a look at his teammates.

    seems like a great guy. definitely the Jays #2 prospect now (I’m still giving Sanchez the benefit of the doubt and assuming he’s not hurt)

    One day a Jays pitching prospect will come up be a big league starter for real for 5+ seasons in a row!!! (who was the last one? Romero for a bit? Hutch before/after he got hurt?)

      Just goes to show that there are no ‘can’t miss’ prospects. I was sold on Gustavo Chacin and look where he is….where is he?
      Henderson Alverez is the last pitcher from our system to do anything….not including what Hutch is doing this season.

        Do you boys like MEH-HEE-CO!?! That’s where Gustavo was last I knew

          Fun fact about Chacin, the last game he played in MiLB was for the Buffalo Bisons when they were the Mets AAA team.
