If you were asked to use one word to describe Cam Eden, the first one would likely be 'fast'. It's tough for anyone in the Blue Jays organization to match his blazing speed.
This is no hyberbole either, as Eden last month set a Bisons modern day record with 44 steals in a season. At the time of writing he now has 50 steals, four off the lead in the International League.
Making this even more impressive, is how smart and efficient the 25-year-old is. Consider that he has only been caught four times trying to steal a base this season.
Eden's speed, smartness and efficiency extends to his defence, particularly in center field, where he has made the majority of his starts in 2023. He has a 1.000 percent fielding percentage at the position, while only making a combined three errors at the other two outfield spots.
The 2019 sixth round draft pick might not be as dynamic with his bat, particularly in respect of just three home runs and a .682 OPS in 124 games for the Bisons. This aside though, he hasn't been too shabby.
In this respect, Eden has a .259 batting average, .347 OBP, 46 RBI and 39 walks. And we've already mentioned what he's capable of once he gets on base.
Ultimately, the Yuba City, California native is the long-shot out of the four players in this article, to be the next one called up. However, his time is coming, when he will finally make his fully deserved Major League debut for the Blue Jays.
