Blue Jays Minor League System Monthly Review – May, 2012

It’s time for the monthly Toronto Blue Jays minor league system and prospect update.  Let’s take a look at how the top names in the system performed for the month of May.  All of the top rated prospects will be accounted for with a few exceptions, Daniel Norris, Jacob Anderson, Dwight Smith Jr, Joe Musgrove and Adonys Cardona are still in instructional league (rookie ball) and do not have registered stats yet this year.

Check out the full April review to compare numbers.

Any player rated or mentioned in my top 15 prospect piece are in bold.

LoA – Lansing Lugnuts, Record 44-20, 1st place

2012 AB AVG OBP SLG OPS 2B HR BB K
(OF) Chris Hawkins 232 310 347 397 743 11 1 13 34

(3B) Kellen Sweeney 140 179 297 207 504 2 0 23 30

 

 

 

No real changes here with the exception of Kellen Sweeney, who might be making his last appearance on this list unless he shows a marked improvement.  Perez continues to show a decent bat with some patience and a bit of pop.

2012 IP H ER BB K HR ERA WHIP
Justin Nicolino 47.0 38 7 9 45 2 1.34 1.00
Aaron Sanchez 43.0 22 4 23 38 0 0.84 1.05
Noah Syndergaard 39.2 41 19 13 51 3 4.31 1.36

Syndergaard has really struggled since his dominating April, Nicolino has continued his dominance as has Aaron Sanchez. 

HiA – Dunedin Blue Jays, 41-22, 1st place

2012 AB AVG OBP SLG OPS 2B HR BB K
(OF) Jake Marisnick 202 262 338 431 768 13 3 16 44

(OF) Marcus Knecht 213 221 321 418 739 14 8 30 71

 Jake Marisnick hasn’t hit a homerun in over a month and has been scuffling at the plate.

2012 IP H ER BB K HR ERA WHIP
John Stilson 54.1 56 17 19 47 2 2.82 1.38
Asher Wojciechowski 57.1 64 31 11 44 3 4.87 1.31
Sean Nolin 72.2 62 19 17 73 7 2.35 1.09

Sean Nolin continues to raise his stock significantly with some dominating numbers while Stilson continues to strike out batters at a solid clip but is giving up too many hits.  It was a rough month for Asher Wojciechowski who raised his ERA to 4.87 from 3.09. 

Double-A – New Hampshire Fisher Cats, 22-40, 6th place

2012 AB AVG OBP SLG OPS 2B HR BB K
(1B) Mike McDade 225 311 391 498 889 12 10 27 42
(C) AJ Jimenez 105 257 295 371 666 4 2 5 14

 Ho-hum.

2012 IP H ER BB K HR ERA WHIP
Joel Carreno 29.2 21 14 12 31 4 4.25 1.11
Chad Jenkins 51.0 67 36 14 20 10 6.35 1.59
Brett Cecil 42.2 44 16 14 34 2 3.38 1.36
Deck McGuire 64.1 73 48 25 45 9 6.72 1.52

 Brett Cecil has finally started to turn it around after a dreadful start fighting off an injury.  He might be called upon to help out the big league club if Brandon Morrow is hurt for any length of time.

Triple-A – Las Vegas 51s, 36-21, 3rd place

(1B) Adam Lind 89 416 471 663 1.134 7 5 12 19

These numbers speak for themselves.  Anthony Gose, Travis d’Arnaud and Adeiny Hechavarria have simply been on fire.  I included Adam Lind for reference sake as he has been extremely hot since the demotion.
