The Blue Jays have their top six prospects as part of their player pool. That group includes injured RHP Nate Pearson, who at midseason ranked as their top prospect, and 2020 first-rounder Austin Martin. In recent days, the team has also added catching prospect Gabriel Moreno, who checked in at No. 8 midseason and is just 20 years old. Top 30 prospects Shun Yamaguchi, Patrick Murphy and Yennsy Diaz are also all among the team’s player pool.
ADDITION AND SUBTRACTIONS
The Blue Jays waived Anthony Alford—their No. 27 prospect at midseason—and watched as the Pirates claimed him on waivers. Toronto added RHP Taijuan Walker from the Mariners for a player to be named later and picked up 1B Dan Vogelbach from Seattle in a separate transaction. The Blue Jays also got RHP Dany Jimenez back from the Giants, who had selected him in the Rule 5 draft in December.
