Happy Friday, everyone!
We get it, and so does Bo Bichette - it feels like it’s time, sooner or later, that he arrives in the Major Leagues, and he cracked two more home runs in a game this week to prove it.
But we have a lot more than Bo on our minds in the Toronto system: It’s Blue Jays Weekend in Buffalo; Kevin Smith enjoyed a power-packed weekend for New Hampshire; Ottawa native Demi Orimoloye has re-heated in Dunedin; Johnny Aiello produced highlights both offensively and defensively for Lansing; Luis Quinones impressed in Vancouver; and, after going over the top hit tools last week, we check in for the top pitching tools in Bluefield. It’s the latest insights and outlooks from the Toronto Blue Jays organization, from the voices of the system!
Around The Nest is a weekly podcast about the Blue Jays’ minor league system hosted by the Voice of the Lugnuts Jesse Goldberg-Strassler and featuring the voices of each of the Jays’ active minor league affiliates. It usually goes live every Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm during the season.
