More from Toronto Blue Jays Prospects

Mitch Nay 22-yrs-old

Nay got drafted 27th overall in 2012 and currently ranked as Toronto’s 9th Top Prospect.

Nay has raw power but only hit 5 home runs with Dunedin and posted a poor .110 ISO for the third year. Mitch produced at level average with .311 wOBA and 100 wRC+.

In the field Nay has played 278 games at 3rd with a 2.24 RangeFactor and .924fld%. In 2015 he committed 19 errors, turning 12 double plays. Nay’s arm and hands at 3rd are above average, but lacks the quickness to stick at 3rd.

Overall, in 109 games, Nay hit .243/.303/.353 with .656 OPS, 18 doubles, 5 triples, 5 HR, 42 RBI, 7.3BB%, 17.2K%, and .282BABIP.

Sooner or later Mitch Nay will need to carry that raw power with him from the batting cage to the game. At the moment his bat isn’t good and doesn’t translate to any other position, expect maybe catcher.

Launching pad- Despite his sub-par numbers, Nay should continue his rise through the system and assume the starting 3rd base role with New Hampshire in 2016.

Andy Fermin played a handful of games at 3rd for the D-Jays. He played more games at 2nd, therefore, he will get covered in the 2nd base depth discussion.

Next: We have a Gunnar, a Leblebijian, and a Maldonado
