Blue Jays: 10 Minor Leaguers off to impressive starts
Yennsy Diaz- Pitcher
The 21-year old Dominican Republic native has looked the part this season as Yennsy Diaz is 5-1 with a tidy 2.08 earned run average while fanning 42 in 47.2 innings with the Single-A Lugnuts.
Diaz has not allowed a run in six of his nine starts this season and his stat line would be much more impressive had he not been shellacked for eight runs at the hands of the River Rats at the beginning of May.
The right-hander has struggled the past couple seasons so look for him to garner some attention if he can keep tossing the scoreless outings.
Zach Logue- Pitcher
Zach Logue is a lesser known name as far as the prospects go however the 22-year old has been impressive in his first eight starts of the season. Logue is 3-0 with a 2.93 earned run average whiffing 40 in 46 innings with Lansing.
The hurler impressed after the Jays selected him in the 9th round of last years amateur draft posting a 1.47 earned run average in his first 12 games of pro ball in 2017. The youngster will have to refine his propensity for the gopher ball if he is going to continue to progress, thus far this season he has issued seven round-trippers in eight starts.
The southpaw is another one of the Jays unheralded arms marinating in the minors.
