Jarrod Dyson

Jarrod Dyson is known as a light hitting centre fielder that can play solid defence and run really, really fast.

He only played in 32 games this season slashing below the Mendoza line with a slash line of .180/.231/.180 but he did swipe six bags without getting caught once. He can still run as he stole as many as 30 bases in 2019.

In his major league career that dates back to 2010, he has combined to slash .246/.316/.334 with 256 stolen bases and is successful 85.3% of the time.

The Blue Jays could possibly bring him on a minor league deal to have him as a running specialist if he makes the big league team.

Billy Hamilton

The main reason, and it might be the only reason why Billy Hamilton is in the big leagues is because of his speed.

He has stole 305 bases in his career with a success rate of 81.1%. He’s also quite a solid defender with 75 DRS in centre field.

The problem is, he can’t really hit and because of that, he doesn’t get on base often. He has a career slash line of .241/.296/.325 with almost as many strikeouts (648) as hits (684).

When Hamilton does get a hit, he’s the type of player that can beat out routine ground ball which he has done so before.

He can also turn a single into a double, a two bagger into a triple and a three bagger into an inside the park home run, as he’s just that fast.

The Blue Jays could be intrigued by his speed and defence to invite him to Spring Training on a minor league deal.
