Blue Jays: A Look at Potential September Reinforcements
September is that time of the baseball year where rosters expand and the clubhouse and dugout is packed with exciting new talent. Teams can use this opportunity to either help a late playoff push or evaluate for next year.
In the case of the Blue Jays, their struggles in 2017 make it especially important to consider possible September call ups. This is the ideal time for the Blue Jays’ front office to evaluate which new players can make an impact with the team in 2018 and beyond. It is also a time where fans can see minor league players that they’ve only heard about and potentially even get excited about a bright future.
In this article, I’ve categorized the possible reinforcements in two different ways. The first shows how likely a player is to get called up, and the second shows the potential for success that a particular player may have. Filled with top prospects, breakout performers, and familiar faces, this September figures to be one of the most intriguing months in the otherwise disappointing Blue Jays season.
The Blue Jays are an interesting case, as they’ve got a lot of talent on both sides of the ball. Most of their elite MiLB prospects are in the lower rungs of the minor league system, but there are plenty of talented prospects that deserve a look. Their current situation in the standings could allow the team to give their youngsters plenty of opportunities as well, so let’s have a look at who could be coming to a TV screen near you this fall.
