Almost everything is going according to plan for the Toronto Blue Jays. The top of the lineup is hot, the rotation is delivering quality outings, and many injured Jays are nearing their return.
The heavily used bullpen is starting to show signs of wear and tear but Vladdy, Bo, Teoscar and Semien are doing what they can to shoulder the load. Gurriel is getting hot and Danny Jansen’s batting average has slowly been creeping up over the past week.
Baseball America now has 8 Blue Jays in their Top 100 Prospects, the most of any MLB team. Alek Manoah and Gabriel Moreno have joined Austin Martin, Nate Pearson, Jordan Groshans, Simeon Woods Richardson, Alejandro Kirk and Orelvis Martinez in that elite category.
With 3 games against Boston and 4 against Tampa Bay left in Dunedin can the Blue Jays take advantage and gain ground on their division foes?
