The Toronto Blue Jays have seemingly replenished their prospect cupboard and have four prospects with legitimate shots at debuting north of the border in 2017.

The Toronto Blue Jays are set to begin spring training with an overall strong roster for the 2017 campaign. However, many things can happen over the course of a season, and a seemingly strong roster can often look depleted come July due to injuries and underperforming.

In order to ensure success, a team must have a well-stocked minor league system that consists of both veterans and prospects. After the previous regime traded away many top prospects over the last couple of seasons, the Blue Jays are slowly starting to see their minor league system recover.

While it is never wise to rush a prospect to the major leagues at a young age, it is also counterproductive to keep them at a level they are dominating at. When the minor leagues are no longer a challenge, a player has earned an audition in the show. For the Toronto Blue Jays, four players, in particular, have reached this level and are destined to make their MLB debut in 2017.

Here is a look at four of the soon to be household names in Toronto.
