The good news is that there are three Blue Jays in the Baseball America's Midseason Top 100 Prospects list. The bad news is they are down at the bottom end of the list.

The three are:

Sean Reid-Foley at 84th (for whom they put the hyphen in between the Sean and the Reid for some reason). They said

With a cleaned-up delivery and the same mid-90s fastball, Reid-Foley's is dominating in his second try at the Florida State League

Anthony Alford at 86th. They said:

Alford has battled through a concussion, so his awful first half does have an explanation of sorts.

Conner Greene at 90th. They said:

Greene's 92-94 mph fastball is already plus, and his athleticism, projection and developing breaking balls give him long-term potential.

In a separate article, the prospect hot sheet for July 7, they talk about Rowdy Tellez.

The Scoop: The burly Northern California product combines power with a feel to hit, and this year he's added a discerning batting eye. He ranks second in the Eastern League with 46 walks, just two behind Bradley Zimmer. Two red flags: he struggles against lefthanders and he plays fringe-average defense at first base.
