Alford has been in pro ball for six seasons, but injuries have limited him to only 305 games. As a member of the 40-man roster, he was summoned from Double-A early in the year to make his MLB debut, and played in just four games before the injury bug bit again. He suffered a fractured wrist, which cost him two months and appeared to sap some of his power. Alford, who is built like an NFL running back, slugged .455 at Double-A before his promotion and .402 after returning to New Hampshire in July. He has plus raw power but has never consistently gotten to it in games, and now he is 23 with only seven games above Double-A. He still has plus speed, going 19-for-22 on stolen-base attempts in just 77 games last year. While his 58:36 K:BB was excellent, he is still untested at Triple-A entering his seventh pro season. The tools and proximity to the majors warrant attention, but Alford’s mounting injury history and understandable prospect fatigue have made him a readily attainable asset in shallower dynasty leagues.

  2. Anthony Alford 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Alford came into the 2016 campaign as a highly-ranked prospect, but suffered through an injury-plagued season at High-A Dunedin, missing time due to a knee injury as well as a concussion. He managed to stay healthy during the second half of the season and registered a slash line of .257/.381/.449 with 13 steals during that span. He even earned All-Star honors during the Arizona Fall League. Alford is a center fielder by trade with a decent approach, though he still strikes out a bit too much. He fanned 117 times in 92 games at High-A in 2016, but showed a bit more pop than expected. With 18 steals as well, Alford has leadoff hitter potential for the Jays. He should begin the 2017 season at Double-A, looking to stay healthy and make more consistent contact.
  3. Anthony Alford 2016 Preseason Outlook
    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 team’s 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.
  4. Anthony Alford 2014 Preseason Outlook
    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.
