Which Blue Jays prospect will make their MLB debut next?
By Edward Eng
We just recently had a post about Orelvis Martinez’s unique season so far at New Hampshire. He has displayed quite the inconsistency in hitting, but has been providing the pop and production with 12 homers and 29 RBI, despite only 18 hits in total and a .155 average. He will most likely require more seasoning in the minors to adjust his hitting mechanics to enable him to become a more consistent contact and productive hitter, before even getting any promotion to the Triple-A level. So the big leagues are likely out of the question for now.
Hagen Danner has had a decent start to his minor league season in 2023 with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. In six appearances, he is 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, with 14 strikeouts in just eight innings pitched. After missing most of the 2022 season with an elbow issue, Danner looks to focus more on building back up his arm strength and continue his development as he progresses through the Jays’ minor league system. As a result, it is highly unlikely he would get the call up to the big leagues in the near future despite the promise he has shown thus far.
