Only a handful of the Toronto Blue Jays' rising stars are currently in spring camp with the major league team this year, but a large contingent of them will travel to Florida this week to be featured in MLB's Spring Breakout series.

26 Blue Jays prospects, most of whom are ranked in MLB Pipeline's top 30 for 2024, will take on 25 Yankees prospects on Saturday, March 16 at 1:05 PM EST at George M. Steinbrenner Field.

You'll be able to watch the game right here on Jays Journal in the player embedded within this article, thanks to a collaboration with MLB and STN.

MLB Spring Breakout: What to Expect from Yankees vs. Blue Jays

Nos. 1 and 2 prospects Ricky Tiedemann and Orelvis Martinez are with the Blue Jays in Dunedin and won't appear in the Spring Breakout game, but the rest of the top 10 — including Arjun Nimmala, Toronto's first pick in the 2023 draft — will be there. Notably, all three catchers on the Spring Breakout roster are not ranked in the Jays' top 30 this year. Outfielder Gabriel Martinez is also a non-ranked prospect getting a shot on the bigger stage.

The Yankees contingent they'll be facing is a fierce one, headed by their No. 2 prospect Spencer Jones, who has been on a hitting spree as an NRI in spring training. He was part of the Yankees' first round of roster cuts, but no doubt he's an easy candidate for a call-up during the season. Also notable are prospects Nos. 3 and 4, Roderick Arias and Chase Hampton. Hampton has pitched one almost-spotless inning in spring, walking one and striking out two.
