Remember the debate about which Blue Jays 3B prospect was better, Orelvis or Groshans?

Ohashi is still doing well. He is becoming a multi inning reliever.

Zach Britton hit a home run, walked and struck out twice today which is a good encapsulation of his offensive skills this season. He hasn't played the outfield this year, so evidently the Jays think if he has a path to the majors, it's as a catcher.

New Hampshire in fact has three older catchers with decent offensive track records who are hitting respectably this year: in addition to Britton (25), there's also Andres Sosa and Phil Clarke (both 26). I think Marc has said nice things about Sosa before. Each of them is, I would think, just about ready to get moved up to Buffalo, but there's a bit of a logjam in Buffalo behind the plate. I'd at least release McDowell to let someone move up.

Should Horowitz be up by now? Should Vogelbach be let go?

Vogelbach has had almost no playing time. I'd rather have Horwitz continue to rake in Buffalo than stagnate on the bench, so he can be at his best if injury or a trade clears the path to some playing time with the Jays.
Super Bluto - Wednesday, May 08 2024 @ 08:37 PM EDT (#445764) #
I'm sure Vogelbach would be playing more were he hitting better than .103 with a 21 OPS+. If Horwitz hits in Toronto, he'll play. And he's 26 years old. No point in baking him any longer in the minors.

What is the rationale for keeping Vogelbach over Horwitz at this point? Is it kind of a hoarder thing, where Atkins wants to preserve "depth" in the system (at least until Votto is ready to go)?

I went through gameday for C Dallas. He throws these pitches for strikes. 4 seam FB (93mph tops), sinker, cutter, slider, CH & CU.

Gameday Troy Watson. 4 seam FB (tops 98mph), Cutter, CU, CH, SL. 3IP, 50pitches, 31 Ks.

The other reason vogelbach has barely played is because Turner has been so good. But that has started to fade now and will likely continue fading.
