A 20th-round selection of the Blue Jays back in 2018, Vinny Capra has worked his way through almost every step of the Minor League ladder and finally got his break earlier this season and was called up to the Blue Jays on April 29th. The move was to add some depth to the bench with Cavan Biggio struggling and also being placed on the COVID-19 IL.
Capra did not see a lot of playing time with the Jays, registering just five at-bats while being used multiple times as a pinch-runner or defensive replacement. He did collect his first big league hit, a single to left-field against Rays reliever Brooks Raley on May 13th. He would be optioned down roughly a month later and is now on the 7-day IL with the Buffalo Bisons.
The righty-batter does make himself useful as a utility-type player but considering the club has Biggio playing well as of late and a plethora of infield talent in the Minor Leagues, Capra may become a victim of the numbers game if the Jays add some veteran talent before the trade deadline passes.
