The Blue Jays have a lot of players who could have made the back end of the top 30 list. It was hard to pick who should be in the 27 to 30 range and who just missed. I mentioned at the start that eleven players were dropped from the top 30. They are Adam Kloffenstein, Manuel Beltre, Miguel Hiraldo, Rikelbin De Castro, Victor Mesia, Chad Dallas, Joey Murray, Eric Pardinho, Chavez Young, Luis Quinones and Trent Palmer. Some of the pitchers dropped off due to injuries, they have a chance to rebound. There are a number of international signees on this list who didn't progress in 2022 but many of them are still young and will be hoping for a rebound in 2023.

International Signings

Before we get to the 31's I wanted to look back at some of the Jays international signings. Andrew Tinnish has received plaudits for some of the Jays signings such as Vlad Jr and Alejandro Kirk. Gabriel Moreno would also fit in that category. The Jays went over the cap to sign Vlad Jr in 2015 and as a result their budget was restricted in 2016. But I wanted to look at the subsequent years.

Eric Pardinho was the top signing in 2017. He has pitched well but injuries have derailed his career. Leonardo Jimenez was another top pick with the same result, injuries have been a problem. Miguel Hiraldo seems to have hit a road block on his way up the ladder. Alejandro Melean is still in the system. The best player could be one of the least acclaimed, Rainer Nunez who made this years top 30 list.

2018's top signings were Orelvis Martinez and Gabriel Martinez.

In 2019 the Jays top signings were Rikelbin De Castro, Estivan Machado and Victor Mesia. Less heralded signings included Robert Robertis and Dahian Santos.

The only 2020 signing to have registered so far is Manuel Beltre who has been a disappointment early in his career.

Luis Meza was the top signing in 2021, he did not have aa good 2022 season.

In summary, the Jays hit the ball out of the park in the mid 2010's. But signings over the last couple of years have been more mixed. The player with the biggest bonus is the equivalent of the number one pick. You would expect those top signings to make it to AA or AAA at least. But Hiraldo, Beltre, Machado and De Castro have not yet lived up to expectations. Signings out of Latin America are heavily dependent on relationships and local personnel. I am not sure if anything has changed with these for the Blue Jays.

Gabriel Moreno

And because it was written before the trade, here is a summary of Gabriel Moreno.

When you are a number one prospect, every aspect of your game is under scrutiny. Number one prospects need to be excellent on offense but also good defensively. Gabriel Moreno hit .315 this year in Buffalo having hit .373 the previous year in New Hampshire. He then hit .319 in his short major league stint. That is a good track record for his offense. His defense behind the plate is also very good, he is very athletic and receives well. But as a number one catcher prospect every aspect of your game needs to be excellent and for Moreno there are questions around his power and game calling, and those questions are still unanswered.

Catchers in the major leagues have unique requirements. They often struggle to add offense as game calling and defence are the primary focus areas. That is the first gate Moreno has to pass through. Moreno's defence behind the plate passed all tests in 2022. He receives well, he is an excellent thrower and moves well to block pitches. However, in a small sample, pitchers ERA was higher with Moreno behind the plate. Experts are divided as to whether this means anything as there is a lot of variation in the effect from year to year. Even so, Moreno will look at 2022 as a learning experience and can work on improving in 2023.

The only negative in Moreno's offensive game is a lack of power. Moreno has a flattish swing and can shoot balls to all fields. But he doesn't get much loft and was limited to three home runs in a half season in Buffalo. He should tap into more power as he gets older but ten to fifteen home runs seems to be his upper limit. On the other hand Moreno runs well for a catcher and will get plenty of doubles and possibly the occasional triple.

Moreno should be in Toronto all season but, if the Jays don't trade a catcher, and want to play with his free agency, he could be sent back to Buffalo.

The 31's

So here are the 31's, all of whom are worth watching in 2023.

The 31's

Brandon Eisert was an 18th round selection in 2019 out of Oregon State. The 6'2" lefty did not pitch in 2019 and missed 2020 due to Covid. Eisert breezed through three levels in 2021 and was assigned to Buffalo to start 2022.

Eisert had a very consistent 2022. He pitched 10.2 innings in April, June, July and September and 10.1 in August. His WHIP went from a high of 1.41 in July to a low of 0.84 in September. For the season his WHIP was 1.14. Eisert doesn't walk too many, his BB/9 was 2.23. Eisert would pitch mainly full innings, with sometimes up to two innings, meaning he wasn't pitching like a LOOGY, he faced whoever was up. He struck out 11.4 per nine innings.

Eisert doesn't have the fastball velocity that you usually find in today's bullpens as his fastball is in the low 90's. However he sets up with his front foot and body angled towards first base so he hides the ball well and then delivers from a low 5/8ths slot. That deception helps his fastball play up. He also throws a slider and curve. Eisert is a case of results versus tools. Eisert might not have the tools that scouts like to see but he gets results. Eisert is not on the 40 man roster and sits behind Tim Mayza and Matt Gage on the depth chart. He should return to Buffalo for 2023.

Trenton Wallace is a left handed pitcher who was an 11th round pick last year. He started the season in Dunedin where he had a 1.11 ERA in 11 games. That got him on a plane to Vancouver. Initially Wallace had a walk problem. Over his first five starts he threw 17.2 innings and walked 24 hitters. Yikes! But then he started to figure it out. His numbers for his last four starts were 21.2 IP; 12 hits; 7 walks; 30 strikeouts. This is a small sample size but if he maintains that end of season form he should be in New Hampshire before mid season.

Luis Quinones dropped off the list from 2021. He had a typical Quinones season, once he returned from a drug related suspension. In 71 innings in AA he kept the hits per nine low, at 7.0. He racks up the K's, 11.5 per nine thanks in part to an excellent curveball. But his Achilles heel has always been his walk rate, 6.3 per nine innings. If he could reduce the walks he would have a shot.

Cooper Benson was selected in the 17th round of the 2021 draft. He is a left handed pitcher who pitched in seven games for Dunedin, mostly starts. He pitched well there with a 2.45 ERA and 12.3 K's per nine. Benson had the fifth best K% in the system behind Frasso, Tiedemann, Santos and Burnette. That's good company. You always need to keep an eye on the lefties as they could end up as major league relievers down the road.

Chad Dallas was a fourth round selection in 2021 and made 21 starts for Vancouver. It was a disappointing season for Dallas. He walked too many, 5.2 per nine and didn't strike out enough, 8.8 per nine. Precedent says he should be in AA for 2023 but he could find it tough going there.

Jimmy Burnette was taken one round after Cooper Benson in 2021 and like Benson he is a left handed pitcher. Burnette is more advanced in the system than Benson, he started 2022 in Vancouver and moved up to New Hampshire. In Vancouver, Burnette struck out 18 per nine innings and in NH 13.5 per nine. His challenge is walks, he walked six per nine innings in AA. Get those walks under control and he could be in line for a call up.

Robert Robertis is a 19 year old left handed hitting outfielder who had 107 at-bats in the FCL where he hit .290 with a 755 OPS. He did not hit a home run. Robertis was called up to New Hampshire as an emergency fill in for the last week of the season. In five games there he hit .294 and he hit two home runs. He then hit .385 with a home run in seven games in the Venezuelan Winter League. This could all be a small sample size illusion, or did he find something in his swing? He bears watching in 2023 to find out which.

The Jays 3rd round pick in 2022 was Alan Roden. He had a slow start for Dunedin with a .685 OPS but he will be given more time to be evaluated. In the playoffs he batted .294 with an .808 OPS.

Peyton Williams is a large man, 6' 5" and 255 pounds. He is a first baseman or a DH so he needs big offensive numbers. The regular season was average, a .715 OPS but he exploded in the playoffs hitting .353 with a .900 OPS. As with all the 2022 draftees, 2023 is when we will get a true measure of their potential.

Mason Fluharty is another lefty pitcher like Benson and Burnette. Fluharty was a reliever in college and continued that with Vancouver. Fluharty struck out 12.3 per nine in 15 innings.

Roque Salinas is a 19 year old Mexican outfielder. He played for Dunedin in 2022, his first pro season. His OPS by month was .200; .604; .603; 713; .829; and 1.286. That's good growth and he is also hard to strike out. He is one for the Vancouver fans to watch in 2023.

Manuel Beltre was a top signing of the Jays out of the Dominican Republic. He did not hit all that well in 2022, just .234 in the FCL. BA also noted that his exit velocities were not great. But he is still young, just 18 years old, and 2022 might have been a wake up call for him. He should be in Dunedin for 2023 and could reestablish himself as a top prospect.

Devonte Brown was undrafted out of NC State where he was a .300 hitter in 2022. He stayed a .300 hitter in 78 at-bats in Dunedin. He also walked more than he struck out and ended the year with the best wRC+ in the system.

Thank you, Gerry and Niall/#2JB.

For what it's worth. I think Moreno's medium range pop will return this year as he recovers more fully from the wrist injury. However, the finer points of his defensive game are still a work-in-progress, and that is a bigger deal.
bpoz - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 08:20 AM EST (#426126) #
Excellent write up for the #31+. 27-30 could have been filled by 14+. Individual choices depend on what is valued in a prospect.

Davis Schneider 23 but been in the system a while. Maybe Rance Mulliniks?

M Beltre maybe Manny Lee.

So a veteran and a kid.

Many lefty relievers in the system helps with probability.

I like Robert Robertis because he has good defense I believe.

There are many more types.

C's Plus Baseball provides good content. Thanks Niall. The sound of a Hr by Barger/R Nunez. Also athleticism High Lights.
Marc Hulet - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 09:25 AM EST (#426127) #
I've been working my way through watching a lot of minor league games for the Jays this offseason and the worst prospect I've seen so far is catcher Victor Mesia, a six-figure international signing who previously had some hype.

He's is very much out of shape. His defense is atrocious. There is some arm strength but he doesn't get down to block balls, doesn't provide a good target and his throwing/release mechanics are ugly. He also appears to have no discernable approach at the plate. In other words he can't hit or play defense. Pitchers don't seem to do as well when they throw to him compared to someone like Jose Ferrer, who also can't hit but is an excellent defender and field leader.

The DSL was very, very had overall in 2022 and they were consistently crushed by opponents so I don't see a lot of hope among those coming over to North America for 2023.

The Jays lost international scout Ismael Cruz to the Dodgers after the 2015 season and it seems to have had a detrimental effect.

I do think Jommer Hernandez (signed after Pirates released him) and Andres Sosa have some defensive promise. Sosa could be a sleeper with some offensive potential, too. For a catcher...
raptorsaddict - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 09:53 AM EST (#426128) #
Thanks for all the hard work, this is always the best system breakdown anywhere. Greatly appreciate the effort, as clearly it takes a ton of it to produce something this good.

greenfrog - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 10:07 AM EST (#426129) #
I think the Jays signed Kirk and Moreno in 2016. Do they still have those scouts? Hope so.
Marc Hulet - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 10:32 AM EST (#426130) #
The ground work and agreement to sign players usually come 2-3 years before signing so that would have been Ismael Cruz, who has since left.
Gerry - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 10:35 AM EST (#426131) #
Thanks Mark. As I wrote I thought the Jays have fallen short recently. I had forgotten about Ismael Cruz. So much of signing down there is dependent on relationships.
Ducey - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 10:37 AM EST (#426132) #
How about Alex De Jesus?

He is # 16 on the MLP pipeline top 30. He was obtained in the Mitch White trade. He is a 20 yr old SS/3B with a strong arm who hit 268/386/447 with 12 HR in 2021, and 263/370/433 with 14 HR last season.

He did not do much in 24 games with Vancouver and K's a lot (151K in 113 games) but is showing good power and an ability to get on base at a young age.
greenfrog - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 10:50 AM EST (#426133) #
The groundwork issue occurred to me but how much groundwork was required to offer Kirk and Moreno $25,000?
mendocino - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 11:10 AM EST (#426134) #

No mention of Cruz in article but... last Jan when they officially signed Luis Meza, the story came out about already having an agreement with Bonilla for this year
John Northey - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 12:21 PM EST (#426135) #
mendocino - great article there. It is quite the story about how Kirk was discovered. Reads that the scout - Decillis - needs to be signed to a long term deal and fully trusted. To see past Kirk's body type (the old Billy Bean quote of 'we aren't selling jeans' applies) is a very big deal. Too often evaluators are caught up in the perfect body - over 6' tall, just shy of 200 lbs - but as Bengie Molina says in that article - as long as you produce no one cares what you look like.

I'd love to see what other guys this scout has recommended and signed and who that 6'2" guy he was there to scout was that he wasn't impressed with.

Also of note is how amazing that 2016 IFA market was for the Jyas - Otto Lopez - Alejandro Kirk - Gabriel Moreno all signed despite a tight budget (plus Lourdes Gurriel who was a special case not subject to the cap) due to Vlad being overbudget the year before. Btw, it appears the cost to the Jays was $30k for signing Kirk in the end.
greenfrog - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 07:33 PM EST (#426142) #
This article suggests the Jays have a lot of work to do in improving their farm system and IFA signings. The Jays organization doesn’t get a single mention in the survey results:
Shoeless Joe - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 08:39 PM EST (#426143) #
Their last draft has a lot of potential towards fixing that.
greenfrog - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 08:52 PM EST (#426144) #
I liked the draft as well. But it's not just about who you draft. It's also about how well you develop the players in your system.

By my count, a total of 17 MLB teams received at least one vote in responses to these three questions:

1. Which team best develops pitchers?
2. Which team best develops hitters?
3. Who is the best at developing “sleeper” prospects?

The Jays did not receive a single vote.
John Northey - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 10:42 PM EST (#426145) #
That was a funny one - polling when you could do an analysis if you wanted.
UDFA: Jays 2012+: Vlad, Kirk, Moreno, Gurriel Jr, plus other role players.
Yankees 2012+: Adonis Garcia. Thairo Estrada. Luis Severino (13.2 bWAR). Luis Torrens. Jorge Mateo. Domingo Acevedo. Raynel Espinal, Chris Smith. Mike Ford. Adonis Rosa. Anderson Severino, Jose Valdez. Masahiro Tanaka. Hoy Jun Park. Dermis Garcia. Diego Castillo, Estevan Florial. Miguel Yajure. Oswaldo Cabrera. Rony Garcia. Deivi Garcia. Elvis Peguero, Jose Devers. Oswald Peraza. Roansy Contreras, Ezequiel Duran. Those are UFA who re3ached the majors since 2012 for the Yankees (last was signed in 2017). Some might be good prospects, but only Luis Severino has seen success comparable to Vlad & Kirk. To rank the Yankees ahead of the Jays on IFA is to base it on prospects and theory not results unless you love getting a ton of 1-2 lifetime WAR guys.

I'd love to run a study on the UFA's by team but sadly BR doesn't have that function for free (do they in the paid version?). AFAIK only The Baseball Cube even lists them by year which is very useful, but doesn't have stats unless you pay. Ah well.

I'm digging into the draft and will write an article on it I think - too much work for just a comment, but so far I'm checking 2012-2022 and the Jays are looking good so far with 103.1 bWAR from 57 players, Astros #1 with 139.3 from 61, Rays doing poorly though with 61.8 from 47 - they clearly count on trades to survive and might be going into a slump soon without better drafts. The ugliest is the Angels at 20.7 from 41 players over the past 11 drafts (so far). I figure if the past 11 drafts haven't produced much you aren't good at either drafting or developing or both. It'll be interesting once I get all 30 into it (at 9 so far).
John Northey - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 10:46 PM EST (#426146) #
For the Yankees I should've added Masahiro Tanaka as a success but he was a ready product when they got him (more so then Gurriel was for us) - producing 17.3 WAR for $155 million (so not a great bargain at $9 mil per WAR).
greenfrog - Thursday, January 12 2023 @ 10:57 PM EST (#426147) #
I imagine the polling would reflect how well the current front office is doing at acquiring and developing prospects, as opposed to how effective the pre-2016 regime was in this regard.

Probably there is some truth in the polling results. Industry insiders often have a pretty good sense of who the best performers are.
Shoeless Joe - Friday, January 13 2023 @ 10:26 AM EST (#426150) #
The Jays have invested heavily in their development program, I feel that is stronger than their scouting ability. Players in draft have chosen the Jays over other departments.

If you look at Tiederman and Manoah I’m not sure you can argue against that.
Ducey - Friday, January 13 2023 @ 11:16 AM EST (#426152) #
Toman seems to have preferred the Jays:

"We really wanted to go to the Blue Jays," Toman told Lou Bezjak on draft night. "I love the Blue Jays and we stuck around for them. They're my guys."
SK in NJ - Friday, January 13 2023 @ 12:01 PM EST (#426153) #
Since 2018-19, the Jays have graduated/developed:

Guerrero Jr, Bichette, Biggio, Jansen, Gurriel Jr, Tellez, Romano, Kirk, Espinal, Manoah, Moreno

Hernandez was acquired in 2017 but came in as a prospect and developed into a very good hitter as well.

That's a pretty good recent track record. The next wave of young talent hasn't presented itself yet, and one of the players that could have been put into that group was just traded (Moreno), but there's still time for that to happen. That next group that was drafted/signed in the last few years will need to start sprinkling in over the next few seasons. Of course, given the Jays competitive window, some of them might end up being traded. Groshans, Martin, and Hoglund were all moved, as well as Moreno, in the last 2 seasons. That's 3 first round picks and a top 10 prospect in the game.

The pitching development definitely needs to improve. Aside from Manoah and Romano, it's been an issue, and the Jays have thrown A LOT of money to solve it at the big league level. Pearson not panning out has hurt, although I'm cautiously optimistic that he can turn into an impact talent as a 1 inning reliever. With Tiedemann, Zulueta, Barriera, Robberse, Juenger, Macko, etc, it seems they are finally starting to see some improvement there, but can't rely on pitching prospects, as we all know. Just have to hope 1 or 2 of them pan out.
mendocino - Friday, January 13 2023 @ 01:56 PM EST (#426157) #
If it takes 5 years to evaluate a draft, the polls might be talking about this run of 1st round picks

BA on Enmanuel Bonilla (#4 on their MLB international prospects bonus board):

“The Blue Jays have hit on international signings at the top of the market (Vladimir Guerrero Jr.) down to the lower-dollar signings like Alejandro Kirk and Gabriel Moreno. For Jan. 15, 2023, Bonilla looks to be in line for a bonus in the $4 million area. Bonilla has high-end bat speed and the ability to drive the ball with impact, giving him a chance to be a 25-plus home run threat. Scouts highest on Bonilla thought he had one of the best combinations of hitting ability and power in the class, with a sound swing path and a good approach. Others thought he was a good fastball hitter who would have to make adjustments to get better against breaking stuff with a power-over-hit offensive profile. Bonilla is an above-average runner with a strong arm, so he could start off in center field, though with his physicality it's likely he ends up in right field long term.”
greenfrog - Sunday, January 15 2023 @ 02:23 PM EST (#426199) #
Fangraphs on Enmanuel Bonilla (FV 40+):

"The burly Bonilla already has rare power for a prospect his age, and it is weaponized by very advanced feel to hit. A scout with awareness of its gravity put a Manny Ramirez swing comp on Bonilla. There's a chance his frame gets to a LF/DH area because he's already so physical, but Bonilla looks like a potential middle-of-the-order force."
John Northey - Sunday, January 15 2023 @ 03:37 PM EST (#426200) #
MLB Trade Rumors has a list of the top IFA signings so far. Padres spent $5.6 mil on Ethan Salas, C, Venezuela (top ranked international prospect), Yankees signed Brando Mayea, OF, Cuba for $4.4 mil (BA #2, MLBP #9). Lots of interesting stuff
John Northey - Sunday, January 15 2023 @ 04:48 PM EST (#426201) #
Video of Emmanuel Bonilla throwing at 95 mph and hitting a home run. Dang he could be a really good one in RF someday (4 years down the road).

Question for the prospect folk - where would you put Bonilla on the Jays list today?

2021's big sign, Manuel Beltre, was 9th here last year despite a meh season. 2022's big sign, Luis Meza, was outside this year's Top 30.
John Northey - Sunday, January 15 2023 @ 05:39 PM EST (#426203) #

A few years ago Atlanta got penalized for breaking rules on Int'l signings.

I believe an IF named Kevin Maitland got a huge signing bonus and to date he has not lived up to his pedigree.
Gerry - Sunday, January 15 2023 @ 06:46 PM EST (#426205) #
I would probably put Bonilla in the teens. The bonus is large so others would probably have him in the top ten but I am always wary of 16 year olds until they show something.

I'd have Bonilla probably around #10 or so tons of volitility for prospects his age but system isn't very strong right now and I'd take him over say, Robberse who projects as #4/5 if he makes it or Juenger who is a reliever.
greenfrog - Sunday, January 15 2023 @ 10:20 PM EST (#426208) #
Orelvis arguably had comparable hype to that of Bonilla. He signed in July 2018 for $3.5m. In Feb. 2019 he was the Jays #16 prospect (Fangraphs). In July 2019 (a year after the signing) he was #12 on BA’s midseason ranking of Jays prospects. The system was somewhat deeper then than it is now. So it’s conceivable that Bonilla could check in at around #10-15 (maybe a bit higher if your belief in him is strong) on the current Jays prospect rankings.
John Northey - Sunday, January 15 2023 @ 11:12 PM EST (#426209) #
FanGraphs has Bonilla as a 40+ at the moment, #6 among IFA's.

Of note: FG has the Jays likely to sign Junior Arias but no announcement yet (rated a 40 in RF), rated #11 by them.

Going into 2022 FG had just 4 players rated higher than Bonilla is - Moreno 60, Orelvis Martinez 55, Leo Jimenez 45, Jordan Groshans 45. At 40+ was CJ Van Eyk, Ricky Tiedemann, Rikelbin De Castro, and Sem Robberse. 11 were 40's.

Samuel Acuna $300,000 bonus. Does this count against the pool money? I don't really know what the cut off is.

A few years ago A Tinnish said 1) We target up the middle players. So C, 2B, SS, CF. 2) Not up the middle 1B, 3B, LF, RF are signed because they have an outstanding tool.

Imagine thinking a 15 year-old kid may need to make adjustments to get better at hitting breaking balls.

It actually must be tough writing a scouting report on a 15 year-old.

<i>Imagine thinking a 15 year-old kid may need to make adjustments to get better at hitting breaking balls.</i>
