Daniel Norris Makes Pro Debut

One of the most frequently asked questions for Toronto Blue Jays prospect watchers is when will prized left handed starter Daniel Norris make his professional debut?  Well, the rookie and short seasons have finally started and that is often where teams have their fresh draft picks start their big league dreams.

Daniel Norris, whom the Jays drafted in the 2nd round of the 2011 MLB draft (and went well over slot to get him signed) made his debut for the Bluefield Blue Jays in the Rookie Appalachian League and was pretty darn impressive. 

4 IP, 0 hits, 0 earned, 0 walks and 5 strikeouts.

Also making his debut was another highly touted Blue Jays prospect Joe Musgrove.  The big 6’5″ right handed pitcher is an imposing figure on the mound and was also impressive.

4 IP, 2 hits, 1 earned, 0 walks and 5 strikeouts.

A pair of 18-year old starting pitching propsects that will definitely be worth keeping an eye on going forward.  Be sure to check back here for the daily Blue Jays prospect report to keep tabs on all of the best Jays minor leaguers.
