Danny Jansen- Dunedin Blue Jays

Danny Jansen is proving this season that he may be the backstop of the future for the Blue Jays. The catcher was drafted in the 16th round, 475 overall in the 2013 amateur draft by the Jays out of high school.

Jansen is off to a torrid start with the lumber batting .369 with 45 hits and 5 home runs while knocking in 18 in 31 games for Dunedin. Last season Jansen struggled offensively hitting .218 with only 1 home run in 57 minor league games.

In 218 career games, Jansen owns a .255/.349/.368 slash line with 16 home runs. The catcher seems to have put it all together thus far this season as he attempts to solidify his name in the same conversation as other Jays prospects Reese McGuire and Max Pentecost.

Jansen adds to the Jays nice nucleus of catching depth in their system and is an interesting wild-card to watch and see where his offensive numbers end up as the season progresses.
