There were many other deserving candidates but these were the prospects which stood out the most in May. I’ve been very surprised with the amount of player movement throughout the entire system. It’s been surprising and very entertaining. The upper minors are flush with very good players. Strong performances have been rewarded with promotions with the exception of Vladdy and Biggio.

 

If there is a minor league player who had a strong May and you feel I’ve overlooked, please don’t hesitate to include them in the comments section below.

Lover of all things Toronto Blue Jays. Blue Jays MiLB fanatic. I strive for average while stumbling onto above average. Rogers isn’t cheap. Baseball is a business. Your right, but I’m more right.
