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.

Appalachian League

2 – D.J. Davis, OF
4 – Mitch Nay, 3B
5 – Dawel Lugo, SS
6 – Chase DeJong, RHP
8 – Alberto Tirado, RHP
12 – Jairo Labourt, LHP
16 – Adonys Cardona, RHP

Gulf Coast League

5 – Franklin Barreto, SS

Northwest League

13 – Tom Robson, RHP
19 – L.B. Dantzler, 1B
