This year’s Top 30 Prospects list has a ton of new faces along with plenty of slot changes. Vlad Guerrero still reigns supreme on our list just like he did in 2017. There were a few players that fell in the ranks, as Sean Reid-Foley, Jon Harris, Rowdy Tellez dropped from their positions on the 2017 list. Angel Perdomo fell the furthest as he went from 9th down to 24th on the 2018 list. I think this is more from the rising of talent around him rather than issues with his talents, as he put together another strong season in 2017.
The Top 10 looks pretty different as a number of players excelled and hit multiple levels of the Blue Jays’ system this past year. Danny Jansen climbed from 22nd all the way up to 7th. Fellow battery mate Ryan Borucki broke out this past year and kicks off the Top 10.
Over this past season, the Blue Jays have had a plethora of new faces break onto the Jays Journal List. Eleven players made their debut on the list this season. The majority of the new faces are this past season’s draft picks. The 2017 Blue Jays draft class is an exciting wealth of talent. Highlighted by Nate Pearson and Logan Warmoth, who debut in the Top 10 of the list, and Eric Pardinho just missed the Top 10 at number 12 as a 16-year-old International signee out of Brazil. He already is the face of the baseball movement in Brazil and looks to become the face of a youth movement in the Blue Jays Minor League pitchers.
Time to dive into out rankings and take a quick summary of each player on our list.
