OMG: Toronto Blue Jays
The last, and final OMG (One More Guy). I mean, like OMG, I can’t believe this never-ending series is done.
But I digress. Here’s the Blue Jays’ Top 10. And here’s OMG from their system:
Jacob Marisnick, OF: It’s a testament to how far the Blue Jays’ system has come that Marisnick wasn’t in my Top 10. Some others had him there (BA had him at No. 10, though that list was produced before Brett Lawrie came aboard), but a couple of years ago, a player like this would have likely ranked much higher.
The 2009 third-rounder is a terrific athlete who made his pro debut a year ago after signing at the deadline back in ’09. He has the chance to have all five tools going on the field. He can play center field for right now, but he might end up being a qualitiy right fielder, with the bat and strong throwing arm to fit there.
While it might take him a while — he’s continuing to work on refining his hitting skills — he has the potential to hit for good power, run well and play a good outfield. He got a full-season assignment and had gotten off to a solid start with Lansing.
