Adopt-A-Jay 2022 - 4th Edition - My How Things have Changed

Minor Leaguer

Now that we've finally been given the word that Baseball Is Back (tm) we can go ahead and continue on with basebally thoughts, basebally discussions and basebally player picking, because we all know that something people love about baseball is picking things.

Historical editions, so you can check and see just how good your favorites have been:

2019 Edition - 2020 Edition - 2021 Edition

Welcome to 2022!

If you haven't seen this before, the idea is pretty simple. We all love following our team and players, but if you have a particular player you like cheering for, following, or wish you had hair that was like that, well, here's a list of them all and you can get to pick your favorite.

But, sadly, we don't have profile quotes to put them in anymore? What's up with that? That's a foul play, SBNation. Not only that, I don't see a FanPost section. Am I missing something? Will anyone see this? :(
(Edit: The reason there was no FanPost section is because no one had made one yet, so now there is, yay! Thanks for the promotion too!)

The "rules", such as they are:

1 - If your guy from last year is still part of the team and you enjoyed following them, you have first choice to do so again.

2 - If someone's got your pick, I'm sure some sort of agreement can be made, possibly involving drinking. Work it out! Make a trade or something!

Below is a list of players currently on the MLB Jays, as well as MiLB players that I remember existed. If someone isn't on the list, just say so, and I will add them.
