Despite the Jays' farm system being ranked fairly low, all four of the farm teams currently have a winning record, and there are a lot of good performances in the early going, particularly among the hitters.

One I'll note is Garrett Spain, who didn't do much of note last year repeating in Vancouver, but who got a fair bit of playing time in Spring Training for a guy just out of High A ball, and who has hit four home runs in the early going in Manchester. His contact problems are extreme, so he's very much a long shot, but he's showing quite useful power from the left side right now.

Spain was a player I liked two years ago as a deep sleeper after i watched him play a couple of games. He plays hard, is solid in the field and a good base runner. His issue has always been that he has more of a "small ball" toolkit but he always tried a little too hard to hit for power. It's possible that he's actually developed more powerful now but I see more of a potential 4th OF with gap pop that can run well and play solid D.

Good day for the Bisons hitters, including a 469-foot grand slam by Orelvis. Horwitz scored four times and is keeping his OPS over 1000. Barger hit a couple of doubles and Palmegiani was 3/5.

Great to see Palmegiani heating up, taking walks and showing power. Barger is also looking MLB ready - good strike zone judgement, consistency and showing power (mostly gap right now).
