2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Sierra isn't considered an elite prospect for the Blue Jays, but for a second straight season put up good numbers in their minor league system. Once in Toronto, he showed flashes of power but also a lack of ability to make contact. Sierra struck out 44 times in 147 at-bats, and is likely headed to Triple-A Buffalo with the Jays' flurry of offseason additions.

2012

Sierra began to translate his raw athletic talents into baseball skills with his best season as a pro at Double-A New Hampshire (.277/.342/.436 with 18 homers). It wasn't a breakout season by any stretch, but it was at least a step forward for the 23-year-old. Expect him to start the season at Double-A again as he still needs to do a better job of controlling the strike zone.
