A few teams in the organization continue to roll.
It’s the second day of the Blue Jays Minor League Report 4.0, and I hope you enjoy the new formatting! If you missed the article covering games from July 25th, these articles will now basically be a recap of the games.
Let’s start in Buffalo.


The Buffalo Bisons smashed the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 14-2, bringing their overall record to 48-49 and their second half record to 14-8, 0.5 games back of the Iowa Cubs.
With a big score, there’s a lot of players to look at. The best of which was Tanner Morris, who went 5-5 with three doubles, a single, and his fourth homer of the season. His wRC+ went from 91 prior to the game to 103. Sticking with homers, Davis Schneider hit his organization-leading 20th home run of the season. He also added a double and a single with a walk and hit by pitch.
Orelvis Martinez went 2-5 with four RBIs and a strikeout. All of these RBIs came in his two plate appearances in the third, a single and a double. Rafael Lantigua hit his 26th double of the season, going 2-5.
In terms of pitching, Bowden Francis was the star of the game, finishing with a line of 4 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, his ERA now sits at 2.88 with a 37.9 K% and a 5.8 BB%.


The New Hampshire Fisher Cats had their chance to beat the Hartford Yard Goats, as they led 6-0 after the fourth. Ultimately, they fell 9-8, bringing their overall record to 42-47, with a second half record of 7-14 (seven games out).
The standout of this game was Will Robertson, who went 3-6 with a game-tying single. He also struck out three times. Rainer Nuñez has heated up as of late, as he hit his fourth home run of the season and added a single. Sebastian Espino was the other home run hitter, also hitting his fourth of the season while also hitting a single. Andres Sosa went 2-4 with a walk, hitting his fourth double in Double-A, while Steward Berroa also had a multi-hit game.
Sem Robberse got the start, finishing with a line of 5 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 8 K. While it wasn’t his best start by any means, the eight strikeouts tied a season high that he set in each of the first two games.


The Vancouver Canadians won, because of course they did. After nearly being no-hit the night prior, they beat the Everett AquaSox 7-0. This brings their season record to 57-34 and their overall record to 19-7, not that it really matters at this point after winning the first half.
Gabriel Martinez easily earned the player of the game on this day, going 3-4 with four RBIs, hitting his seventh and eighth home run of the season, see below. Josh Kasevich also hit a home run, which was only his second career home run. He doesn’t have a lot of pop in the bat, but man he’s a fantastic hitter.
Many players had one hit games, like Jommer Hernandez, Ryan McCarty, Cade Doughty, and Michael Turconi. Furthermore, Adam Macko had his best start in the Blue Jays organization, going 5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 7 K.


The Dunedin Blue Jays may have lost 8-2 to the Tampa Tarpons, but the draftees are on the way. That said, their overall record sits at 42-50, while their second-half record is at 10-16, last in the Florida State League West.
Edward Duran may have been a player to be named later in the Jordan Groshans trade last season, but he’s having an eye-catching season. On Wednesday, he went 2-4 with a strikeout and two RBI, while both hits were doubles. In his last game (July 23rd), he hit only his second career homer. Is the Blue Jays catching factory back?
A few other players had hits in this game, such as Jaden Rudd who went 1-3 with a walk, Roque Salinas, who went 2-4 with two singles, and Abiezel Ramirez, who also had two singles and a walk.
There wasn’t a standout pitching performance, so let’s talk about those draftees who are starting to make their debuts. Brennan Orf and Bryce Arnold were the first two, with Orf registering a hit, and Arnold going 0-4, but had two hard hit balls. I’d expect many of their draftees to end up in Dunedin, similar to last season.

DSL Jays:

The DSL Jays completed a game that was suspended, and beat the DSL Yankees 7-2. This technically brought their record to 15-15, but their actual record now sits at 22-15. Suspended games are weird.
Daniel Pérez continues to be the standout of the 2023 international free agent class, going 2-3 with a double and two RBI in this game. Adrian Meza also had a multi-hit game, going 2-3 with an RBI.
David Guzmán, Maykel Minoso, Faruk De La Cruz, Aldo Gaxiola, and Jarold Montealto all had at least one hit in this game, while the last two and Minoso also drew a walk.
Rodolfo Toledano started this game, and finished with a line of 3 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, while Raudy Gomez finished out the last two innings, finishing with a line of 2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K.
