Marc Hulet's Guide to the Blue Jays Short-Season Teams

Fangraphs Marc Hulet has written a great guide to the Blue Jays short-season teams, Actually is is more than that, It has top prospect lists, a break down of our 2011 draft with profiles of all picks in the first 15 rounds (with odds of signing each, a detailed look at our last few years of drafting, an overview of our short-season teams and profiles of many of our many of our prospects from our short-season teams. 

It is very detailed, it gives us a lot of information about players in our farm system, especially the lower levels, where information is hard to come by. Here is an example of a player profile:

Adonys Cardona
Right-Handed Pitcher
Height: 6-4 Weight: 170
Born: January 1994 Options: 3
School: Venezuela
Signed: 2010 non-drafted free agent
Repertoire: 86-91 fastball, curveball, changeup

Notes: Cardona has a very quick arm action and throws from a higher three-quarter arm slot. He needs
to do a better job of staying balanced on the mound and will also needs to get into a good fielding
position during his follow through. Cardona will likely make his pro debut in the Florida Rookie League
with the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays. He throws an average fastball right now, in terms of velocity, but
projects to add ticks as he matures. He'll look for more consistency with his secondary pitches,
especially the breaking ball. The key international signing for the Jays in 2010, Cardona was given more
than $2 million to sign.

The guide is a free download, and there is a ton of information there. Check it out.
