Jansen, who ascended from High- to Triple-A during the 2017 season, finished the campaign with a .323/.400/.484 slash line over 104 total games.

The catching prospect logged 31 games at High-A, 52 contests at Double-A and 21 affairs at Triple-A. Overall, he popped 10 home runs, notched 48 RBI and scored 50 times. Jansen's jump through the ranks was obviously impressive, but the 22-year-old's plate discipline (1.02 BB/K) was equally noteworthy. Toronto's 16th-round selection in 2013 has thrust himself into a tight race with Max Pentecost for the Jays' heir apparent to Russell Martin.
