#10 – Ryan Borucki – P

Ryan Borucki turned everything up to eleven this past season and cruised through the Blue Jays Minor League system. After a solid start in Single A+ with the Dunedin Blue Jays, Borucki was promoted to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and got even better in when challenged. He baffled Double-A hitters to a .842 WHIP. He had a 1.245 WHIP with the D-Jays just to put that in perspective. After tossing 46.1 innings with the Fisher Cats he was promoted again to get a spot start for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons. In that start, he threw six innings and did not allow a hit while striking out six. Borucki has shown that he has put things together and could be a dark horse candidate for the big league rotation in the near future.

#9 – Sean Reid-Foley – P

A monster 2016 season that solidified Sean Reid-Foley as a legitimate ace in the making for the Blue Jays. However, over this past season, Reid-Foley hit a speed bump with some issues in Double A. He watched his ERA climb to 5.04 as his workload increased to a new level of the system. Reid-Foley still poses all the right tools but needs to find a way to stay consistent on the hill and keep hitters guessing. His delivery and arm angle are deceptive enough that it can fool plenty of hitters when coupled with his hard fastball. Mixing in some good off-speed pitches will keep those hitters guessing as he gets back to dominating hitters.

#8 – T.J. Zeuch – P

After a full season in the Toronto Blue Jays Organization, T.J. Zeuch has cemented himself as one of the best arms in the system. The 2016 first round draft pick had nine short season starts and posted a 4.50 ERA. This past season Zeuch really showed off his tools. He threw 65.2 innings and posted a 3.56 ERA while striking out 51 batters. He has great movement on his pitches and pounds the strike zone efficiently. This was on full display in the Arizona Fall League as he baffled hitters that were two years older than him on average. Zeuch is a possible ace in the making and will be fun to watch this season.

#7 – Danny Jansen – P

One of the big standouts from the 2017 season was catcher Danny Jansen. The former 16th round draft pick in the 2013 draft hit on all cylinders this past season. After performing at all levels of the Toronto Blue Jays Organization over the past year, he is on the cusp of being a Major League catcher. His bat did most of the talking in 2017, when he posted a .323 batting average in 104 games. After starting the season in Dunedin with a video game like stat line, he jumped to Double and Triple-A throughout the season. In Buffalo, he played in 21 games and got better when the challenges should have been getting more difficult. He hit three homers and drove in 10 RBI while playing with the Bisons and is looking for the next challenge.

#6 – Logan Warmoth – SS

This past season’s first-round pick of the Blue Jays was Logan Warmoth. The talented shortstop out of North Carolina played well in his Pro Baseball debut with the Vancouver Canadians. He batted .306 in his first 39 games and was crazy productive. He was a big part of the Championship team and drove in 20 RBI and scored 18 of his own. He also popped 11 doubles, two triples, and a home run in his 49 hits. Warmoth could be on a quick path to the show as he is already 22 years old and displaying an advanced approach to the game in general.

Estimated 2018 starting point – Single A+ – Dunedin Blue Jays
