Blue Jays Prospect Report – August 17, 2012

Wow let’s take a minute to honour a fellow Jays fan who suffered a heart attack at Thursday’s game versus the White Sox. Absolutely a terrible day for Blue Jays nation. Thoughts go out to his family and friends.

A little less motivated this morning for the daily prospect report, but here it is.


MAJ (1B) David Cooper, 1-3, .294
MAJ (RF) Moises Sierra, 1-3, 2 RBI, .359, HR (2); every once in a while a player comes out of relative obscurity and blossoms.
AA (CF) Jake Marisnick, 2-4, .223, 2 SB (11)
HiA (DH) Marcus Knecht, 1-3, 1 RBI, .210, 3b (5)
R (3B) Matt Dean, 1-3, .221
R (2B) Will Dupont, 1-2, 2 RBI, .276, 3b (1), 2 BB (7), SB (2)
R (SS) Dickie Thon, 2-2, .222, 2b (5)


LoA (SP) Noah Syndergaard, 3 ip, 0 h, 0 er, 1 bb – 3 k, 2.79; workload being managed carefully down the stretch.

    I was actually going to say Sean Nolin, talk about a guy who has come out of nowhere and is posting very impressive numbers.

    I actually thought he was hurt, but if not he should get a bit of a look. I also agree on McDade and Stroman (who I think the Jays are definitely going to promote).

    Since most of the ‘no brainers’ are either on the team (Gose, Sierra, etc.) or injured (Td’A), who would you like to see called up?

      I mean who is left? d’Arnaud would’ve already been here if not for the injury as you pointed out. Gose is struggling but might as well give him a full look now, see if he can get the big league jitters out of the way early. He just doesn’t look comfortable.

      The only players I want to see will all be shut down on innings limits (Sanchez, Syndergaard, Nicolino etc).

        I’d like to see Marcus Stroman. I don’t know if it’s a long shot since he was just promoted to AA, but it would be worthwhile.

        Deck McGuire’s been credited with 5 losses in his last six starts. His numbers are terrible, and he’s 23 in AA. He’s probably a non-prospect now.

        Koby Clemens probably has good novelty value, since his dad pitched for TOR. The problem is that TOR has Mathis, Gomes, JPA, and Torrealba to fulfill catching duties.

        How about Sean Nolin? He’s an under-the-radar lefty who strikes out a lot of batters. Is he another Aaron Loup, perhaps?

        I’d like to see Mike McDade, the fella the Rockies wanted in exchange for Guthrie (man, there’s a trade I’m glad didn’t happen…). He’s only K’ed 5 times in about 50 ABs at Vegas.

        Other than these guys, it’ll probably be the usual suspects (Crawford, Hoey, Cecil, Beck, etc.). Among the ‘veterans’ with ML experience, I’d like to see Shawn Hill get the late-season call-up. Just another Canadian boy for the expanded roster.

        Regarding my Guthrie comment, check that. I hadn’t looked up his numbers since the deal. His first two starts were duds (against Minny and SEA, no less), but he pitched very well against TEX, CWS, and OAK in his last three. Those are three of the hottest teams around, too.

        Still, I think I’d rather have Happ than Guthrie even though Guthrie would have been a heckuva lot cheaper.
