AA New Hampshire Fisher Cats
Hayden Juenger – RHP
A sixth-round selection out of Missouri State University, right-hander Hayden Juenger holds the honour of being the only player drafted by the Blue Jays last season to crack the AA roster.
An in-depth look at the Toronto Blue Jays 2021 draft class and where each player will begin the 2022 season within the Minor League system.
After amassing a 4.14 ERA through 50 appearances over the course of three years with Missouri State, Juenger finished out his draft year in High-A Vancouver, where the Missouri product pitched to a 2.70 ERA through 11 relief appearances and 20.0 innings, collecting 34 strikeouts that equalled a 15.3 K/9 while keeping the walks in check to a 1.8 BB/9.
With the updated 2022 prospect rankings, Juenger finds himself listed as the Blue Jays #26 prospect and has an MLB ETA of 2023, with the reliever putting himself on the fast track to potentially be the first prospect from this draft class to make it to the big leagues if he can continue to pitch well.
