Mission ’13: How Is the Young Talent the Jays Traded Doing Now?

I was interested in the young players whom the Jays traded in the 3 major trades with HOU, MIA, and the NYM. They gave up a lot of talent to get a lot of talent. The talent they acquired is under-performing and, therefore, under-achieving but how about the guys who went the other way? These are just the minor leaguers; the major leaguers—guys like Yunel Escobar, John Buck, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez, Francisco Cordero, Ben Francisco, and Jeff Mathis—were expendable roster players.

Without further ado, here are a few snapshots:

Jake Marisnick, OF, Jacksonville (AA, SL)

  • 29 G, 29 H, 6 HR, 3 DBL, 24 RBI, 5 BB, 36 SO
  • .252/.313/.435
  • On May 30 he had a dream game: 3-5, SB, 2B, 2 HR (both grand slams), 9 RBI

Justin Nicolino, P, Jupiter (A+, FSL)

  • 11 GS, 2.54 ERA, 56.2 IP, 55 H, 1 HR, 9 BB, 37 SO
  • 10 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 12 SO in his last 2 starts
  • 32 H, 4 BB, 11 ER, 10 SO in his first 24.2 IP; 15 H, 1 BB, 1 ER, 22 SO in his last 22 IP

Travis d’Arnaud, C, Las Vegas (AAA, PCL)

  • .250/.429/.472
  • out since Apr 18 with a foot fracture
  • was 1-2, HR, 3 BB on Apr 15

Noah Syndergaard, P, Port St. Lucie (A, FSL)

  • 10 GS, 2.73 ERA, 52.2 IP, 49 H, 15 BB, 54 SO
  • had a 10 SO game (no BB) on May 16

Asher Wojciechowski, P, Oklahoma City (AAA, PCL)

  • 6 GS, 3.94 ERA,32 IP, 31 H, 12 BB, 24 SO
  • promoted to AAA recently

Carlos Perez, C, Oklahoma City (AAA, PCL)

  • 21 G, 8 BB, 11 SO
  • .296/.363/.408
  • 5-9, 2 DBL, 3 R, 4 RBI his last 2 G

Anthony DeSclafani, P, Jupiter (A+, FSL)

  • 11 GS, 1.88 ERA, 48 IP, 46 H, 8 BB, 44 SO
  • gave up 6 ER in his first 10 starts (43 IP)

P Kevin Comer, P Joe Musgrove, and OF Wuilmer Becerra are all in the Appalachian League, which hasn’t started yet.

These guys are playing well, as was to be expected. The Jays farm system was good, and this lateral view confirms that these were quality MiLB players. There’s no guarantee that any of these players will work out at the ML level, but there’s a lot of promise in this group of players.

There are two that I lament trading: Travis d’Arnaud and Justin Nicolino, with dark horses being Carlos Perez and Anthony DeSclafani. That said, there’s no sense crying over spilt milk, as the saying goes, so here’s to hoping that the player they acquired start playing to their own considerable potential.

    Television commercials and radio campaigns and print pieces and banner ads launched
    by the majority of the advertisers on the planet find
    ways to couch the truth into a series of benefits or features that almost make the
    truth insignificant. People like law enforcement, debt collectors and private investigators
    can all testify that instant people finder searches are not all quite what they claim to be.
    Many ad companies may try to take control over your campaign and dictate
    how your concept should look.
