Welcome to the Batter's Box Top 30 Blue Jay prospects for 2015. Your trusted minor league correspondents pooled their votes to come up with the list and then began the task of creating the prospect descriptions you see below. Come back tomorrow for numbers 20 through 11.

There is a lot of turnover from 2014 thanks to "trade-em-all Alex". Ten of last year's top 30 were traded. They were Daniel Norris, Franklin Barreto, Jeff Hoffman, Kendall Graveman, Miguel Castro, Jairo Labourt, Sean Nolin, Dawel Lugo, Matt Boyd and Alberto Tirado. In addition to those ten, Aaron Sanchez, Dalton Pompey and Roberto Osuna all graduated to the big leagues. All of those departures makes room for a new crop of prospects, some of whom shot onto the scene in 2015, and others who made it because the system is a lot less deep than it was a year ago. The system will now be a bottom third system, but there are always some exciting players and you only need two or three to become stars to have a successful top 30.
