Blue Jays' Anthony Alford: Headed to spring training
Alford received an invite to go to big league camp for spring training. It is very difficult to watch Alford play without immediately throwing a Denard Span comp on him. He will be an OBP machine at the big league level, and could steal 25-30 bases in his prime, making him a prototypical leadoff hitting center fielder. He should spend most of 2016 at Double-A, and could reach the big leagues as soon as 2017.
