Nate Pearson pitched his one inning in the GCL today. Also the forgotten Emilio Guerrero played on a rehab.

Patrick Murphy starting game two for the GCL Jays. The Lugnuts need pitching.

Sadly, Lansing has been the place pitching goes to die this year...

18 year old Elieser Medrano had an excellent 5 inning outing in the GCL today. Anyone have any more info on him? Would the Jays consider him a legit prospect?
Marc Hulet - Tuesday, July 18 2017 @ 02:10 PM EDT (#345459) #
I don't know a lot about him... but any time the Jays skipped a player over the DSL it's a good sign that they see them as more advanced than the larger group -- and with higher potential. You can loop Joseph Reyes, Roither Hernandez, Otto Lopez, Alvery de los Santos into the same group... Other players like Jol Concepcion make huge strides in a short period of time and don't need much DSL experience.

This is what BA said a year ago....

Blue Jays international scouts have shown a knack for picking up quality arms at good prices out of Latin America, with a few candidates to watch potentially emerging from their high-volume class. One is 18-year-old Dominican righthander Elieser Medrano, who signed for $15,000 in July. Hes a lean, projectable 6-foot-2, 180 pounds with a loose arm and a fastball that jumped from 88-93 mph when he signed to touching 97 mph this summer. When he signed he threw a slurvy upper-70s slider that he has worked to modify into more of a true curveball with more depth and downer action.

Thanks Gerry. Good find.

all draft bonuses listed

Anyone have any information on Travis Hosterman? He was an 11th round pick last year and signed for a decent bonus, but has yet to debut this year

Dunedin lost 6-0 today. They managed to get 6 hits. No surprise which 2 batters got 5 of the 6 hits. Simply amazing. They're now hitting a combined .760 in Dunedin.

A month ago, it looked like first rounder Jon Harris was on his way to becoming a long term disappointment. While he still has a 5.18 ERA on the year, it's a full run lower over his past 55 innings (3.93 ERA) and he's only allowed five earned runs over his last 26 innings. A glimmer of hope that he's turned a corner?
PeterG - Tuesday, July 18 2017 @ 10:19 PM EDT (#345483) #
A bit more than a glimmer I would say.
dan gordon - Tuesday, July 18 2017 @ 11:07 PM EDT (#345484) #
Harris pitched a great game today, 7 IP, 4 H, 1 BB, 7 K, I ER. In 8 of his last 10 starts, he's given up 3 ER or fewer. In one of the other games, he gave up 7 ER in just 2/3 of an inning. Aside from that game, the ERA is 2.82 for the other 9 games. His last 4 games include a K/BB ratio of 20/4. He certainly seems to have turned a corner after a poor start to the season.

I read somewhere that Harris attributes his turnabout to ditching the changes that the Jays had made to his pitching mechanics and returning to his college pitching mechanics.
