    • Blue Jays' Anthony Alford: Inches closer to MLB gig
      By RotoWire Staff

      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.

    • Alford was promoted to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports. The 23-year-old finished strong with Double-A New Hampshire after returning from a wrist injury, earning a promotion to Buffalo for the Bisons' final series of the season. That may not be the last stop for Alford; he is already on the Blue Jays' 40-man roster, having made his big-league debut in May, so he could very well be among the team's next wave of September callups. If he does get the call, Alford will likely play primarily off the bench.

    • Alford, 23, is hitting .310/.406/.429 with five home runs, 24 RBI and 18 steals in 68 games at Double-A New Hampshire. A torrid start led Alford to a brief four-game stint in the big leagues, then his season was derailed yet again by injury. He has been back at Double-A for about a month now, but must prove to the club he can stay healthy. Alford has never played more than 107 games in a single season.

    • Blue Jays' Anthony Alford: Returns from DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alford (wrist) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday and optioned to Double-A New Hampshire, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. Alford landed on the disabled list in late May with a left wrist fracture and has been working through a minor-league rehab assignment over the last couple of weeks. The young outfielder has progressed well enough to return to full-time action and will be deployed with the Double-A New Hampshire club. Alford is one of the few long-term building blocks for the Blue Jays who is close to the majors, and as a member of the 40-man roster, he could rejoin the big-league club in September.

    • Blue Jays' Anthony Alford: Moves rehab to Double-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alford (wrist) was transferred to Double-A New Hampshire to begin the next phase of his rehab assignment, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports. This is a positive sign related to Alford's overall recovery, as it indicates the team is confident with his rehab progress thus far. The 23-year-old went just 3-for-21 with eight strikeouts over six games at High-A Dunedin, mainly serving as the designated hitter before starting as the center fielder for Tuesday's contest. Alford has been out of action since May while rehabbing from a broken hamate bone, and likely slots back in as a reserve outfielder for the Blue Jays upon his return.
