The Toronto Blue Jays have a plethora of promising talents honing their respective crafts throughout the various ranks on the farm, here is a look at 10 prospects off to impressive starts in 2018.

While Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette garner much of the prospect praise, the Blue Jays have a boatload of young talent cutting their teeth in the minor leagues. The MLB Pipeline ranked the Jays farm system as the 9th best system in the majors led by the likes of Vladdy, Bo, and Anthony Alford.

The Jays brain trust and scouting corps have done an admirable job in recent years drafting and signing amateur talent. The team has also ventured into International waters with a number of high upside signings including Brazilian pitcher Eric Pardinho.

The Jays have dipped into their system on a number of occasions already this season with Teoscar Hernandes stealing the starting right field job after a recent call-up. The likes of Alford, Dalton Pompey, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. Richard Urena and Dwight Smith Jr. have all been with the big club for a brief stint thus far this season.

Here is a look at 10 prospects raking on the farm whose major league aspirations could become a reality sooner than later.
