It is very disappointing to watch prospect after prospect be touted around the MLB as the future of the given franchise. From D'Arnaud to Nicolino to Syndegard, the Blue Jays have done a great job stockpiling the rest of baseball and I am not we are the better for it. The one shining light is Aaron Sanchez, the Cubs were adamant that Sanchez be included in the jeff samardzija trade offers. The Blue Jays have wisely retained Sanchez and many scouts project him as a top of the rotation, number 1. His stuff is already better than most of the pitchers heading north. Routinely clocked in the mid nineties. Sanchez will probably be assigned to the Bisons and could see the big leagues after the All Star break.

Something that has been lossed in the moves that were made last year is that way it left the Blue Jays minor league system. The Blue Jays have been sending top prospects all around MLB; Noah Syndegard and Travis D'arnaud are both poised to put the Mets into an incredibly powerful position. The Marlins are also incredibly stacked, only leaving the Jays with basically a raped farm system de-void of anything future inspiring. Toronto only has 1 player in the top 50 - Aaron Sanchez, with many other top prospects having started with the Jays.
