RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

A third-round pick by the Blue Jays out of high school in 2012, Alford has made a slow but steady climb up the minor league ladder. In 2015, he split his time between Low-A Lansing and High-A Dunedin, hitting well at both spots. In 50 games with Lansing, he hit for an .812 OPS with 49 runs scored and 12 stolen bases in 13 attempts. At High-A Dunedin, he posted an .825 OPS with 42 runs scored and 15 stolen bases in 21 attempts. This was the first season where Alford showed off his wheels, having stolen just 11 bases combined in the previous three seasons. With a lot of movement in the teamís minor league system, both through promotions and from deadline deals, Alford finds himself as one of the top prospects in the Blue Jays system. He figures to begin his age-21 season with Double-A New Hampshire.

2014

A third-round pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, Alford recently completed his sophomore season as a defensive back for the University of Mississippi. His immense physical gifts create plenty of long-term upside, but Alford's college football career could get in the way. Assuming he plays two more years at Mississippi and doesn't enter the NFL Draft, Alford wouldn't become a full-time professional baseball player until 2016. He was limited to six games in the Gulf Coast League in 2013, where he went 5-for-22 with a 6:6 BB:K and a pair of steals.
