Minor League Ball's John Sickels recently released his list of top 20 Houston Astros Prospects and there is a small Blue Jays connection due to the much lamented J.A. Happ trade.
And here are where the ex-Jays placed:
13) Asher Wojciechowski, RHP, Grade B-: Came over in the Jays trade and looked better for it, was awesome in his last five Double-A starts (16/2 K/BB with 1.16 ERA). That could presage a breakout.
OTHER GRADE C+ PROSPECTS: Jose Cisnero, RHP; Nate Freiman, 1B; Joe Musgrove, RHP; Brett Oberholtzer, LHP; Carlos Perez, C; Rob Rasmussen, LHP; Preston Tucker, OF; Austin Wates, OF.
OTHERS: Andrew Aplin, OF; Bobby Borchering, OF; Colton Cain, LHP; Kevin Chapman, LHP; Kevin Comer, RHP; Josh Fields, RHP; Alex Gillingham, RHP; Matt Heidenreich, RHP; Tyler Heineman, C; Chia-Jen Lo, RHP; Kenny Long, LHP; Jo Mier, SS: Rudy Owens, LHP; Brett Phillips, OF, Ross Seaton, RHP.
David Rollins didn't appear on John's list.
Do you feel a bit better about the deal or are you still unhappy?
