Blue Jays: Writing on the wall is pretty clear for Anthony Alford

When your team isn’t a World Series contender, it’s a common coping mechanism to focus on the future, and in particular with the talent in the minor leagues. We’ve been doing that for the last few years with the likes of Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, and many more, and this season we’ve had the opportunity to enjoy their successful MLB debuts. It’s been great to see long-discussed promise starting to be fulfilled.

It doesn’t go that way for every minor leaguer, and one significantly hyped prospect in the Blue Jays’ system has had another disappointing year, dropping his stock on the minor league rankings, and from the way things appear, perhaps on the organizational depth chart as well.
