It’s been a while considering that a 2022 draftee was placed on Blue Jays Nation’s Top 50, however that adjustments with this post.
Josh Kasevich is an interesting possibility, as he has a fantastic hit device and also will certainly have the ability to stick at shortstop as he’s a fantastic protector.
However, we’ll check out the standards prior to taking a deep dive.
Instead of creating this out each time I provided for the mid-season Top 60, I’ll replicate and also paste my standards for exactly how I rate and also hunt these gamers.
There are lots of elements that figure out a top possibility. The eye examination is the largest chauffeur in figuring out a top possibility, however closeness to the majors, ceiling, and also flooring is likewise crucial. Moreover, stats are an additional crucial active ingredient, as every little thing collaborates to offer you numbers.
As for the qualities, it is essential to keep in mind that they are about the organization in which they play. A youngster from Dunedin is not mosting likely to have a 50-grade hit device if he were positioned in the major leagues. But about the organization in which he plays, a. 300 player is qualified for that quality.
For these leads, I’ll evaluate their history, numbers in the minors, pitch mix (if they’re a bottle), and also offer a hunting record (if possible, novice organization men are hard).
The 21-year-old (that’ll transform 22 a day hereafter post is released) was composed in the 2nd round of the 2022 draft.
He invested his initial period with the Low- A Dunedin Blue Jays, where he lowered.262/.344/.336 without any homers in 122 plate looks. While the shortstop really did not stroll a phenomenal quantity (9 BB%), Kasevich did have a greater BB% than K%, as he had a 7.4 K% because brief stretch. That’s an indicator of a fantastic player.
Looking at his college job, he lowered.310/.383/.445 with 7 homers in 277 plate looks in the 2022 period. Like in his initial specialist period, he had a fairly reduced 8.7 BB%, however just set out 5.8% of the moment with the Oregon Ducks.
Lanky develop, with lengthy legs and also a lengthy upper body with wide shoulders, Kasevich has estimate staying. As it stands, he’s a contact-over-power man that has a fantastic eye at home plate and also can strike hard pitches and also spray the pitches to all areas with space power. As his body remains to establish, he might have the ability to strike 15 homers in a period with his liquid swing. Quick jerk protector with great impulses, a solid arm, and also great maneuvering. Has the possible to stick at shortstop and also be a fantastic protector.
It’s most likely that Kasevich, that’ll be 22 years of ages, will certainly begin his 2023 period with the High- AVancouver Canadians If he creates, he has the possibility to go up the minors rankings rapidly. The largest defect Kasevich will certainly require to address is his power. He’s not rather a five-tool possibility, however with typical to above typical power, the Jays might have obtained a genuine great possibility with their 2nd round choice in 2022.
On Tuesday, we’ll have the last possibility the Jays have actually traded for, that likewise has an interesting tale.
