Toronto Blue Jays Top 30
By Ben Badler
The top of the Blue Jays farm system finally has a different look to it.
They're without either Vladimir Guerrero Jr. or Bo Bichette -- who both graduated to Toronto in 2019 in one of the top two spots for the first time in 2016. While losing two of the game's best prospects hurts the Jays' system in terms of top-end talent, they still boast a relatively strong group, which includes a bevy of intriguing power arms.
That's good news for a big league team that finished 67-95, doomed in part by a beleaguered starting rotation that couldn't support a youthful roster.
Here's how we project their lineup in 2023, with their 2023 age in parentheses.
Catcher: Danny Jansen (28)
First Base: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (24)
Second Base: Cavan Biggio (28)
Third Base: Jordan Groshans (23)
