Jordan Groshans -SS/3B
Jordan Groshans has been a member of the Blue Jays’ top prospect list since being drafted in the first round of the 2018 MLB Draft. The Magnolia High School product has worked his way through every level of the Minor Leagues since being drafted and now finds himself in AAA this season.
He had a late start to the year after starting the year on the IL but since his return, Groshans has been hitting the ball well. Through 33 games, the righty-batter is sporting a .749 OPS with five extra-base hits and 15 RBI on the year with 19 walks and 18 strikeouts. On the field, Groshans has spent most of his time at shortstop (19 games) but is also getting some reps at third base mixed in (12).
There is no doubt that Groshans bat is what will carry him to the big leagues and if the Jays are looking for some additional hits later this season, the Texas product may be one to consider. Fighting for playing time will be his biggest challenge considering the current infield of Bo Bichette and Matt Chapman are in his way. Should an injury arise, it wouldn’t be an absurd thought to give him a chance with the Blue Jays but more so in a DH role rather than on the field, once he is added to the 40-man.
