Baseball America released its 2018 top 10 ranking of Toronto Blue Jays prospects on Wednesday and, as expected, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette lead the bunch, with the publication calling them “arguably the best one-two prospect punch in baseball.”
There are also new names to the list: Right-handers Nate Pearson and Eric Pardinho, lefty Ryan Borucki, catcher Danny Jansen and shortstop Richard Urena each moved into the top 10 ranking after being left off of the publication’s previous edition.
Here’s a look at the full 2018 list:
Baseball America also broke down the best tools in the Blue Jays’ system. Predictably, Guerrero Jr. is the top hitter for average and power, and also displayed the best strike-zone discipline. Anthony Alford was named the best athlete.
On the pitching side, Pearson owns the best fastball and slider, Pardinho the top curveball and Ryan Borucki the best change-up and control.
