Yan Gomes
got the call and made his debut on May 17 against the Yankees, earning his first major-league hit with a single to center field off of Phil Hughes. Gomes’ first big-league home run came the following day as part of the Blue Jays’ 14-5 thrashing of the New York Mets.

On the farm, the biggest story of the week was the likely season-ending injury to New Hampshire catcher A.J. Jimenez, whose sore right elbow may require Tommy John surgery to repair. Instead of handing the regular job at New Hampshire to backup Brian Jeroloman, the Blue Jays promoted Sean Ochinko from Dunedin. Jeroloman hadn’t made a compelling case for more playing time, hitting .095/.240/.095 in 42 at-bats. Ochinko’s departure from the Dunedin roster opens the door for Jack Murphy to receive the lion’s share of starts behind the plate for the D-Jays.

Kevin Ahrens – 1-for-24 0 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 5/4 SO/BB; another rough week drops his batting average below .250 for the first since the start of May.

Jonathon Berti – 7-for-22 0 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 3/4 SO/BB; has hits in nine of his last ten games and has reached base in 11-consecutive games.

Markus Brisker – 1-for-18 1 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 6/3 SO/BB; three hits in his last 33 at-bats; he’s fast, but it won’t matter if he can’t get on base.

Andrew Burns – 6-for-24 3 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 6/4 SO/BB; has taken a step forward in May, hitting .277/.385/.585 in 19 games. Path to a promotion is blocked, however; Kevin Nolan (Dunedin), Ryan Goins (New Hampshire), and Adeiny Hechavarria (Las Vegas) have all been hitting well this year, so it looks like Burns will spend a little more time in Lansing.

David Cooper – 6-for-22 0 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 3/6 SO/BB; fans clamoring for Cooper to receive a shot in Toronto should note that all of the former first-rounder’s home runs this year have come at Cashman Field, one of the most hitter-friendly parks in the minors. Overall, Cooper is hitting .385/.450/.698 at home and just .177/.271/.210 on the road.

Michael Crouse – went on the disabled list on May 18 (retroactive to May 16).

Travis d’Arnaud – 10-for-24 2 2B, 0 3B, 3 HR, 2/1 SO/BB; d’Arnaud’s power has come around in recent weeks, but it’s worth noting that all of last week’s games were at home. He’s hitting a respectable, albeit not spectacular, .266/.329/.469, on the road this season.

Brad Glenn – 1-for-17 0 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 7/1 SO/BB; ten hits in his last 82 at-bats (.122 batting average), dating back to April 21.

Ryan Goins – 7-for-25 2 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 3/2 SO/BB; another solid week for 2009’s fourth-round pick out of Dallas Baptist. Stole a pair of bases on Monday to give him seven swipes in ten tries.

Yan Gomes – 6-for-18 1 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 3/2 SO/BB; promoted from Las Vegas to Toronto on May 17. His batting average at Triple-A hadn’t dipped below .350 since the end of April, and he continued hitting upon arriving in the big leagues. His ceiling is as a useful bench player or second-division regular, but his versatility (can catch and play the infield corners) could keep him around if his bat maintains respectability.

Anthony Gose – 10-for-27 4 2B, 1 3B, 0 HR, 6/2 SO/BB; hitting .325 in May after ending April at .216/.298/.284. He still hasn’t been caught stealing since the start of April, a streak of 16-consecutive stolen bases.

Christopher Hawkins – 5-for-25 0 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 7/1 SO/BB; I don’t believe in curses, but I do feel a tinge of guilt for noting that Hawkins’ batting average hadn’t been below .300 since the start of the season last week, only to see it teeter on the edge of sub-.300ness this week. He recovered with a pair of two-hit games, bringing his average up to .310, but has gone eight games without an extra-base hit.

Adeiny Hechavarria – 9-for-24 0 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 3/3 SO/BB; was caught stealing for the first time this year, but otherwise had another productive week, mashing his fourth homer of the season on May 18. Hechavarria is now halfway toward matching his 2011 total of eight long balls.

K.C. Hobson – 5-for-25 0 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 5/4 SO/BB; has hits in 25 of 37 games, but only five multi-hit efforts overall. Hit his third home run of the year on May 17, snapping a 15-game homerless stretch.

A.J. Jimenez – likely headed for Tommy John surgery on his right (throwing) elbow. If so, he’ll miss the rest of the season.

Jonathan Jones – 10-for-29 0 2B, 1 3B, 0 HR, 4/3 SO/BB; every time I come close to writing him off, Jones goes on a hot streak and forces me to keep him around. Pulled his batting average above .200 for the first time since mid-April and broke out of a six-week extra-base-hit slump with a triple on Monday.

Marcus Knecht – 8-for-31 1 2B, 0 3B, 3 HR, 7/3 SO/BB; flashes tools that make scouts drool, but his approach is a mess.

Jake Marisnick – 8-for-29 1 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 8/3 SO/BB; the strikeouts are piling up, but he’s managed to keep his overall numbers respectable. Marisnick hasn’t gone deep in nearly a month, however.

Mike McDade – 7-for-26 2 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 5/0 SO/BB; launched two more home runs to continue his May power barrage, but had an otherwise ordinary week.

Sean Ochinko – 3-for-15 0 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 3/0 SO/BB; promoted from Dunedin to New Hampshire on May 17 to replace the injured A.J. Jimenez.. Brian Jeroloman was not stoked.

Carlos Perez – 4-for-19 0 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 1/1 SO/BB; his bat will never be considered a carrying tool, but he’s going to have to hit better than .250 if he ever wants to escape the Midwest League.

Ryan Schimpf – 11-for-34 4 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 6/3 SO/BB; has been on fire at the plate this month, and could be in line for a promotion if the Jays decide to move Jonathan Diaz to the bench and shift Ryan Goins to second base in his place at New Hampshire.

Moises Sierra – 4-for-27 0 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 7/2 SO/BB; hasn’t collected an extra-base hit since going deep against Salt Lake at home on May 7.

Kellen Sweeney – 2-for-13 0 2B, 0 3B, 0 HR, 4/3 SO/BB; still too young to give up on, but Sweeney’s bat looks D.O.A.

Jon Talley – 8-for-30 3 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 7/2 SO/BB; it took more than a month, but Talley finally notched his second home run on May 18. He’s gone 1-for-12 since.

  1. Although it’s only been 10 at bats, Adam Lind is proving that you can’t use PCL numbers to project anything at the MLB level: 0.500/0.615/0.900

  2. I’m new to prospect pornography, why is there nothing on here about Dickie Thon?
    Everyone lost their shit when we drafted him, is it just that he’s in rookie ball and it’s useless to try to derive meaning from those numbers?

    • He’s in extended spring training; will start playing in real games when short-season leagues open up next month.

  3. That Cooper road slash line is amazing.
