Jays Prospects Hot Sheet

LHP Fabio Castro AAA
Castro made his first start at AAA on April 30th and had a rough first start with 3 ER in 5.1 innings. Not a disaster, but not stellar either. Since then, however, hos stats are as impressive as any pitcher's in AAA. In his last 3 starts, Castro has thrown 21 innings without allowing a run, struck out 10, walked 5 and allowed 8 hits. His latest start against Memphis was his best of the 3 with 8 IP, 3 hits allowed, 2 BB, and 5 Ks. If this keeps up the Jays will be forced to give him a look to see if his hot start can translate to big league success.

LHP Marc Rzepczynski AA
Marc is now 6-2 on the season and only allowed more than 2 runs in a game once (his second start). He has 52 Ks to his 43 IP, but has allowed 41 hits which could lead to trouble once he gets promoted if he becomes "too hittable". He has lowered his walks per game as the season has progressed to 1 or 2 which is very encouraging and indicates that whatever the outcome, Marc is throwing strikes and trusting his stuff. He could get a look in AAA by July.

RP Daniel Farquhar A Dunedin
15 IP, 21 Ks, 9 hits, 9 BB, 6 saves, no blown saves, 1 ER for a 0.90 ERA. 'Nough said.

2B Brad Emaus AA
Brad belongs in AAA. Over his last 10 games he is hitting .333 with 13 hits, 5 doubles, 2 home runs, 7 RBIs, 6 walks, and only 6 Ks in 39 ABs. On the season he his hitting lefties especially well with a .357 AVG and a 1.116 OPS. He deserves to get a promotion to AAA.

1B Brian Dopirak AA
Brian has driven in 12 runs in the last 10 games with 3 home runs, 1 triple, an d4 doubles being part of his extra base hit onslaught. Like Emaus, he is hitting lefties very well with the same .357 AVG and 1.121 OPS. He also deserves a look in AAA.

LHP Brad Mills AAA
The Jays are loaded with great LHP in the minors and Mills is yet another. He has yet to allow more than 3 runs in a start and only allowed 2 or less in his last 3. He has 29 Ks over 38.2 IP, and has allowed 40 hits and 20 walks. Unfortunately for Mills, he has yet to get a win because like Johan Santana will tell you, you don't always get the offensive support you deserve.
