Dunedin Blue Jays
Anthony Alford, 21-yrs-old
Alford split time between Lo-A Lansing and Advanced-A Dunedin playing exclusively in CF. The top prospect played 102 games with 3 OF assists, 9 errors, a 2.48 RangeFactor and .966 Fld%.
Alford produced at an elite level posting a .386 wOBA and 143 wRC+ in Lansing before moving up to Dunedin on June 25th. With the D-Jays, Alford continued to perform above expectations with .389 wOBA and 153 wRC+.
Overall Anthony Alford hit .298/.398/.421 with a .820OPS, 25 doubles, 7 triples, 4HR, 35RBI, 27SB, 13.9BB%, 22.3K%, and .397 BABIP.
Launching pad- Alford should continue to move quickly through the system in 2016, starting the year as the Fisher Cats starting CF.
D.J. Davis, 22-yrs-old
D.J. took a step forward in his development but did not take a step forward in advancing up the minor level organization, playing his 2nd full season in Lansing.
Davis played mostly LF to start the year with Anthony Alford in CF, but re-assumed the CF role once AA got promoted to Dunedin. In 73 CF starts, DJ generated a 2.20 RangeFactor and .965 Fld%. In all 121 games, DJ finished with 5 assists, 11 errors, a 2.01 RangeFactor, and .957Fld%.
Davis also improved with the stick, posting a solid .341 wOBA (70pts higher than ’14) and slightly above average 113 wRC+.
Overall, Davis hit .282/.340/.391 with a .731OPS, 19 doubles, 7 triples, 7 HR, 59RBI, 21SB, 7.0BB%, 21.5K%, and .353 BABIP.
Launching pad- D.J.will not return to Lansing for a third year. No, Davis will get a crack at starting at CF for Dunedin.
