There were many other deserving candidates but these were the prospects which stood out the most in July. I’ve been pleased with the development of our starters in the middle-level minors and would love to see Patrick Murphy in New Hampshire in the final month of the season. I am very interested to see where the new additions, via the trade deadline deals, are placed and what roles they will play in the final month of the season.

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.
