Baseball America, recently put out their Blue Jays top ten prospect list and topping the list was no surprise. Kyle Drabek came over in the Roy Halladay trade and he got his feet wet with three starts in September callup. After a solid season for Double A New Hampshire, there’s little reason to think Drabek isn’t rotation for a spot at the back of the rotation.
Coming in at number 2 is the Jays 2010 first round pick, Deck McGuire. He didn’t sign early enough to get any time in 2010 but Baseball America thinks he could move up the ladder quickly and should start out at Dunedin. It would surprise me if we see McGuire in 2012 in a Jays uniform at some point.
Anthony Gose is number three and he’s the top position player. He started in the Phillies system, went to Houston’s in the Roy Oswalt trade, and then the Astros traded him to the Jays for Brett Wallace. He’s only 20 and still young and is probably at least a year or maybe two away depending on the Jays needs.
Travis D’Arnaud (C) and Zach Stewart round out the top five. Like Drabek, Stewart could compete for a spot in the Jays rotation next year but BA thinks he could find a home in the Jays pen.
