Minor League Update: Catchers

#44 J.P Arencibia,Las Vegas 51's(AAA):In 26 games he is batting .238/.306/.366 with 4 doubles,3 HR's, and 12 RBI's. Arencibia has been in a slump lately batting only .167 in the past 10 games.J.P will be called up to "The Show" if one of John Buck or Jose Molina get injured.If not he will be up with the club in September when the roster expands.

#8 Brian Jeroloman,New Hampshire Fisher Cats(AA): In 25 games this season he is batting .325/.455/.525 with 7 doubles,3 HR's and 14 RBI's. Jeroloman is known for his amazing defence but his bat is starting to come alive this season.He will likely end the season either starting in New Hampshire or in AAA Las Vegas.

#25 Travis d'Arnaud,Dunedin Blue Jays(A+):In 16 Games this season he is currently batting .328/.362/.547 with 5 doubles,3 HR's and 13 RBI's. Travis was picked up in the Roy Halladay trade with the Phillies this past December. d'Arnaud will most likely end his season with AA New Hampshire.

Stay tuned for the next Blue Jays off day,as we look into the Blue Jays farm system for great talent at the First base position.


  1. Hey Gidi,

    Nice post on the catchers. A few other guys you may want to profile are Yan Gomes and Sean Ochinko although Ochinko is playing catcher right now he may end up at another position as he climbs the latter

  2. If the Jays are still in the playoff race,by the July trading deadline then expect to see some of the Blue Jays catching and pitching prospects dealt.If the standings are the same as they are now then expect playoff specialist Cliff Lee to be traded from the Seattle Mariners to a team in the hunt.He would be the perfect fit for the Blue Jays becuse he could really add some playoff experience to this club.
