Alford, who made his MLB debut in May, capped off his 2017 MiLB season with a .299/.390/.406 slash line in 77 games.

The Jays' top outfield prospect played in 68 games with Double-A New Hampshire, and paced the Eastern League with a .310 batting average. Alford made his long-awaited MLB debut on May 19, but suffered a broken wrist just days later that ended his run in the big leagues. Despite his misfortune in 2017, the 23-year-old will undoubtedly be a top contender for an Opening Day roster spot next spring.
