8/22 Minor League Summary; Santos L. Halper

Jays Organizational Player of the Day:
Sergio Santos

Sergio Santos is a shortstop we received as a throw in when we traded O-dog and Miguel Batista for Troy Glaus. Santos was a top prospect for Arizona once as he was a 1st round draft pick out of high school in 2002. He performed well at each level until hitting a wall in AAA due to strike zone judgment.

After his first year in AAA where he had a line of .239/.288/.367 he managed to worsen that with a .214/.254/.299 season with Syracuse. The Blue Jays organization sent him to start this season with AA with New Hampshire. He had a brief stint in AAA again but was sent down again once Hector Luna was sent down. So far he has had good power numbers with a .253/.326/.488 season.

I don't like him as a prospect. He strikes out an awful lot and a .253 batting average in AA isn't exactly stellar. He is no longer considered a prospect by most and though he will have great nights sometimes he will also have a lot of bad ones.
