Blue Jays Nation’s 2023 Preseason Top 50: Ultimate edition

Just because the 30 prospect articles have been released, doesn’t mean Blue Jays Nation’s Prospect Season is over.

In this article, we’ll be looking at each of the Top 50 prospects’ scouting reports. If you want to see a more in-detail look at their 2022 season (as well as past seasons) or where they may start in 2023, click on the player names!
Furthermore, since Chavez Young (who ranked 48th overall) was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this month, I’ve added an additional prospect at the end of the article to fill to #50 spot. So check that out.
Without further ado, here is each of Blue Jays Nation’s Top 50 prospects’ scouting reports!
#1 LHP Ricky Tiedemann:

Before even getting the game on my monitor, Tiedemann is K’ing pros like it’s little league.

Tall, with long legs and torso, with broad shoulders and room for projection. Tiedemann pitches a low 3/4 arm slot which makes his already difficult-to-hit stuff harder to hit. His fastball has plenty of run, which makes batting left-handed against him an utter nightmare. His changeup is used against both right-handed and left-handed batters and has late downward movement. His slider has high spin rates with sweep, and is a plus pitch. His control and command are good, especially for his experience level. Tiedemann also has the dawg in him, much like fellow Blue Jays pitcher Alek Manoah.
Blue Jays Nation’s Grades:
Fastball: 65
Changeup: 65
Slider: 60
Control: 50
Overall: 60
#2 SS/3B Addison Barger:
