Dasan Brown walked twice and struck out twice, in addition to his triple. With his W/K at reasonable levels, he should be moved to double A now.

P Clarke has strong D I believe and has a V good eye at the plate but no power. Kacevich is similar in that we know that he has great D at SS, 2B & 3B. He does not K much (10%) and has doubles power. Roden's has developing power, steals bases and has a high OBP like the other 2. I don't know how they fit into a contending team. Back up C for Clarke.

It's fun to start seeing movement with promotions for some guys.  Future Blue Jays had this to say on Brown,
'and now finally after a strong May (.273/.379/.489), he may finally be ready to move up to New Hampshire. Brown covers CF like a carpet, and may be one of the fastest players in all of MiLB'
If you guys don't already subscribe to the newsletter, it's the best minor league Jays coverage I know.  Outside of the Box, of course!
I too am happy for Clarke.  He is taking the Eric Kratz route - hundreds of games, per level, slowly progressing.  With guys on the 3rd string C / CF / SS track, a giveaway that the org likes them is spring training time, and Clarke is a spring training go-to. 

Orelvis is fine where he is and the injury to Jiminez changes his timeline, but the guys due for a promotion I am hoping for are Lukes and Macko (to Buffalo).

Clarke is a left bat, which is always nice. I hated when they started Reese McGuire against a lefty.

There's probably not many promotions coming until post-draft. You have to have guys to fill the spots of players who get promoted. The Rookie ball Jays are playing very short and have few worthy of promotions. Same with the hitters in A ball. The new rules capping the number of players in a system - and quite a few injuries - are playing havoc on the org's depth.
