30 names in this write-up but how many prospects?  i don't agree with Gerry in another thread that it's been bad drafting - although one manoah buys a lot of leeway - but with injuries and worrisome seasons, no wonder we didn't have enough bullets at the deadline.  woof.  sorry, i'm trying to avoid gun metaphors.  not enough cash in the kitty.

Not that many prospects at the highest levels but the Jays have graduated a few (Kirk, Manoah, Espinal) and then traded a bunch for Berrios, Chapman, and Stripling. You just dont replace those prospects over night

BTW I noticed placed new guy de Jesus at #8 in the Jays Top 30 prospects list. The list needs rejigging to account for in season performance (Barger is not even on it) and draft picks but that still seems promising. Says he has a strong arm and fluid actions and likely ends up at 3B due to speed issues.

Brennan Delaney of says Eric Pardinho is on his way to Vancouver from Dunedin. This is also confirmed on his player page. Infielder Alex De Jesus, acquired in the Mitch White deal, has also been assigned to YVR.

Right now the Jays are in a win now pattern which normally cleans out a lot of prospects in deals. Plus the Jays from 2018-2021 promoted a lot of guys who worked out well (Jansen, Gurriel in '18, in 2019: Vlad, Bo, Biggio, Romano 2020: Kirk, Espinal, 2021: Manoah) with others coming up and/or being traded like Tellez, Kevin Smith, Riley Adams, etc.

Basically a lot of guys who would be prospects either made it right away for the Jays or were traded for good parts (Berrios, Chapman, Matz, Stripling, Cimber, etc.) I have trouble complaining about the farm being a bit weak at the top right now given that, but we do have arguably the #1 prospect in MLB in Moreno (BA ranks him there, others have him top 5) which isn't bad. To me the farm needs to produce stars, not backups. You can get backups fairly easily normally but stars are hard to find. I'll take one Manoah over 20 Striplings anytime, or 1 Vlad over 20 Tapia's.

Right now the lineup is pretty much set and nobody is expecting a hitter to come to the rescue from AAA anyway.
It's very different with the pitching.
They sure didn't get much from the pitchers on the 40 roster.
Also, a lot of the positive vibes are likewise gone.

Hagger Danner has been injured all year.
Hatch and Kay were brutal.
Merryweather, Pearson and Saucedo (who should be coming off the 60 IL soon) have been hurt.

We still have Foster Griffin and Casey Lawrence.

Soon we will know what our 26 man roster is.

The pen became stronger at the deadline. But I don't know what our long man situation is. With 68 games left hopefully we have 7 SPs in case of injury.

Our position players hopefully are fine. Moreno can play C/IF with good offense. But can he get enough ABs to be worth calling up.

The team looks good now. For 2023 only D Phelps is a FA.

"Not that many prospects at the highest levels but the Jays have graduated a few (Kirk, Manoah, Espinal) and then traded a bunch for Berrios, Chapman, and Stripling. You just dont replace those prospects over night"

This is exactly it. Before this season's picks, Jays have now traded 3/4 first rounders and the other guy is in the majors.They also have traded a bunch of their second rounders (Williams, Conine,) and later (Frasso, Logue, Smith, etc...). Jays have some excellent top prospects and I think this year's draft will replenish the system some which is good because Jays will need to trade away prospects every year as well as graduate some.

John, I’m with you on the goal of producing stars from the farm system. Hardest to get and biggest impact. But it’s not the only way. The Cardinals have had a ton of success pumping out dependable, every day players. This has given them a really high floor, and allowed them to compete year in, year out. They go out and trade for stars and try to retain them.

The Cardinals have developed more than their share of players who aren't "stars" in the conventional sense- relatively recent players like Matt Carpenter, Harrison Bader and Tommy Edman would fit this description.  Typically there is an important defensive element- one constant of the organization is moving players into roles where they can succeed. They have often brought in players who bring offence to less demanding positions (from Jack Clark to Larry Walker to Paul Goldschmidt) where they don't have an internal solution (like Pujols or Carpenter in later career).

Stripling is a free agent as well after this season.

The '24 squad will have big holes with Hernandez, Gurriel, and Chapman hitting free agency.
