MiLB Update: Balazovic & Robson Hot Starts
With the MiLB season well underway, two former Ontario Blue Jays players have got off to hot starts in the highest levels.
Mississauga-native, RHP Jordan Balazovic could not throw any better for his Wichita Wind Surge (AA-affiliate, Minnesota Twins). The former 5th round draft choice, has thrown 44 innings this Summer, compiling a 3-1 record with 57 strikeouts and a 2.44 earned run average as he looks to move north to Minnesota later this year.
Meanwhile in Ohio, Windsor-native, OF Jacob Robson continues to impress for the Toledo Mud Hens (AAA-affiliate, Detroit Tigers). Robson through the All-Star break is scolding hot, hitting .335 with 7 home runs, 25 runs batted in and has added 11 stolen bases as he looks to crack the big league line up later this Fall.
In addition to Balazovic and Robson, seven other former OBJ players are playing across the MiLB this Summer:
OF David Calabrese - AZL Angels (Rookie, Los Angeles Angels), OF Dasan Brown - Dunedin Blue Jays (A-affiliate, Toronto Blue Jays), IF Tyrell Schofield-Sam - Stockton Ports (A-affiliate, Oakland Athletics), OF Gareth Morgan - Tri-City Dust Devils (A-Adv., Los Angeles Angels), RHP RJ Freure - Asheville Tourists (A-Adv., Houston Astros), C Bo Naylor - Akron Rubber Ducks (AA-affiliate, Cleveland Indians), and IF Dany Pinero - Toledo Mud Hens (AAA-affiliate, Detroit Tigers).
