The Domincan Summer League Blue Jays won the Boca Chica Baseball City Division title with a record of 45-27. Their season ended on August 25th when the lost the second game of a 3 game series, 2-1 to the DSL Astros. This was one of the best DSL seasons for the Blue Jays in recent memory, but I’ll admit that I don’t pay close attention to prospects until Vancouver.

The biggest margin of victory came against the DSL Padres on July 1st with a 12-1 win. The most runs scored also came against the Padres, when they scored 15 run on August 17th.
