    Yawn
    In his favour... it is his 1st shot at AA so it's not like he's a 23 year old repeating a 2nd or 3rd year there, and he is younger than league average age. He's just not younger than average age for what's normally expected to be a prospect at AA.

    Couple of Jays kids with MILB Hitter of the Week honors for their respective leagues from May 7-13

    Florida State Eduard Pinto Dunedin .476/.542/.714, 6 G, 10-for-21, 2 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 3 R, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
    Midwest Kevin Smith Lansing .500/.480/.792, 5 G, 12-for-24, 5 2B, 1 3B, 0 HR, 4 RBI, 6 R, 4 BB, 3 K, 2 SB

    And before anyone asks, Pinto is a nobody 23 year old repeating High A and has no power so ... no... not a prospect.

    Smith needs a promotion it's now comically overdue.

    What do you guys think of Austin Riley? I'm getting a ton of bites on him in a dynasty league. How good is he?

    You should probably ask Jim if you want an unbiased opinion

    Vlad Jr is Baseball America's #1 prospect on this week's Hot Sheet

    1. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Blue Jays
    Team: Double-A New Hampshire (Eastern)
    Age: 19
    Why He’s Here: .393/.414/.714 (11-for-28), 7 R, 3 2B, 2 HR, 6 RBIs, 1 BB, 0 SO, 0-for-1 SB.

    The Scoop: Guerrero’s week in some ways looks almost ordinary. He hit .393, but that’s actually four points below his average for the season, an absurd .397. He has 12 hits since he last struck out. But just because Guerrero does the inexplicable on a regular basis shouldn’t allow us to get jaded about just how impressive Guerrero’s season is. He’s a 19-year-old who is more advanced than all the 23 and 24-year-old pitchers he’s facing. Guerrero leads the Eastern League in batting, hits, RBIs and is among the league’s top five in nearly every other offensive category. He’s also the second-toughest player in the league to strike out. He’s simply unlike any hitter we’ve seen in the minors in years. (JJ)

    Sean Reid Foley checks in at number 6

    6. Sean Reid-Foley, RHP, Blue Jays
    Team: Double-A New Hampshire (Eastern)
    Age: 22
    Why He’s Here: 1-0, 3.00, 9 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 HR, 1 HBP, 7 BB, 15 SO

    The Scoop: Repeating Double-A after registering a 5.09 ERA in a full season there last year, Reid-Foley has shown crisper, more consistent stuff this season. Working off a 92-96 mph fastball, Reid-Foley mixes in a slider that flashes plus to get swings and misses to both lefties and righties. He changed his changeup grip in spring training and the pitch had the best action yet in his start last week against Portland. Fastball command remains a focal point for him to improve, but Reid-Foley’s stuff has come together this year to help him hold down a 1.88 ERA in 38.1 innings with 46 strikeouts and 17 walks. (BB)

    And Biggio at 14


    14. Cavan Biggio, 2B, Blue Jays
    Team: Double-A New Hampshire (Eastern)
    Age: 23
    Why He’s Here: .261/.250/.783 (6-for-23), 5 R, 4 HR, 10 RBIs, 0 BB, 8 SO.

    The Scoop: Biggio is the third of the triumvirate of sons of famous big leaguers at New Hampshire. He’s not Guerrero or Bichette, but if he can keep this up, he is a prospect in his own right. At Notre Dame and in the early part of his career, Biggio was best at slapping the ball around the field and taking plenty of walks. This year he’s tapped into some major power and gone from having a sub-.100 isolated slugging percentage to a a nearly .400 ISO. He’ll likely have some regression as the season wears on, but his newfound power makes him a much more interesting prospect. (JJ)

    Kevin Smith at 16

    16. Kevin Smith, SS, Blue Jays
    Team: low Class A Lansing (Midwest)
    Age: 21
    Why He’s Here: .500/.480/.792 (12-for-24), 6 R, 5 2B, 1 3B, 4 RBIs, 0 BB, 3 SO, 2-for-2 SB

    The Scoop: The Blue Jays drafted college shortstops in the first and fourth rounds last year, nabbing North Carolina’s Logan Warmoth at No. 22 overall and then Smith out of Maryland at No. 129. Warmoth has started slowly at high Class A Dunedin, but Smith has excelled one level lower in the Midwest League, which he leads in hits (50), RBIs (31), doubles (19) and slugging (.639). While Smith doesn’t necessarily have a plus tool on his report, his well-rounded game is making the case for a second-half bump to the Florida State League. (ME)

    Smith has to move up. I know they want Warmoth in Dunedin everyday but if they shoot John La Prise into the sun (24 year old who ... sucks) then one of Smith or Warmoth plays 2nd.

    I don't think stalling Smith at Lansing is a good idea.

    He is completely unathletic though (7.03 60 yard dash). He's got to hit and hit well to have a chance. His big thing always was his ability to control his bat. Now it seems like he's sacrificed some of that for some power. He obviously can adjust...just don't know what the athleticism issues will hurt him.

    He's quite good indeed. Moustakas would be the best comp out of current MLB 3B.

    Another hit for Vladdy. Now hitting .411

    Dalton Pompey homered twice. From both sides of the plate.

    Were Santana's walks at least competitive?
