In the System: Blue Jays prospect Logan Warmoth

The Toronto Blue Jays drafted Logan Warmoth in the first round of the 2017 draft due in large part to his offensive prowess at the shortstop position. But it’s not just the bat that has members of the Blue Jays organization excited.

“Logan is a very polished player all around,” said Blue Jays director of player development Gil Kim in the latest edition of In the System. “His greatest strength is probably his hitting ability but really his strength is having that all-around game. He’s a solid defender at shortstop and we’re excited about what he’ll do.”

The 22-year-old Orlando native has been slowed by injury in 2018, but Warmoth is still the fifth-ranked prospect in the Blue Jays’ farm system after building an impressive resume at the University of North Carolina.

Family is crucial to that success. He has a very strong bond with his parents and brothers, with the relationships outlined in detail in Sunday’s In the System segment. You can watch the full video feature below:
