Baseball America has released its top 100 prospects list. There are three Blue Jays on the list.

The Jays on the list:

  • #7: Gabriel Moreno

They say he’s shown “premium hitting ability, growing power and plus defense”. And that he’ll give the Jays ‘another young homegrown All-Star”. Last year he was 12th.

  • #62: Nate Pearson

“Pearson’s repeated injuries and inconsistent control make him a potential reliever rather than a starter, but he has excellent stuff.” Last year he was #55.

  • #75: Orelvis Martinez

“He is unlikely to stay at shortstop, but his bat will play just fine at third base.” Last year he was #58.

We had seven on it last year. Alex Manoah (13th) and Alejandro Kirk (85th) graduated. Austin Martin (21st) was traded, he dropped to #47. And Jordan Groshans fell off the list.

Orioles catcher Adley Rutschman gets the number 1 spot.
