Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Heating up at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans is batting .318 (14-for-44) over his last 12 games for Double-A New Hampshire with a home run, six doubles and a 9:8 BB:K.

The 21-year-old has had trouble finding in-game power this summer, and his homer Wednesday was only his sixth in 66 games this season and first since June 25. Groshans has maintained good habits during that power drought though, and he's finally beginning to see better results. Toronto's No. 1 fantasy prospect should be viewed as the organization's third baseman of the future following the trade of Austin Martin and Cavan Biggio's washout 2021, and Groshans is putting himself in position to make his big-league debut sometime next season.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: No homers since late June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans hasn't hit a home run for Double-A New Hampshire since a two-homer effort back on June 25, though he's still managed to hit .294/.374/.412 with 10 doubles and an 11:18 BB:K in the 25 ensuing games.

His lack of home-run power is certainly concerning, but Groshans has kept hitting nonetheless, and he's cut down his strikeout rate to a noteworthy degree in the process. The Fisher Cats also play in a park that typically favors pitchers. Of course, as a guy who has minimal speed and is expected to land at third base in the majors, he's going to have to hit the ball out of the yard way more often. Groshans has only five homers on the season, and if he doesn't ultimately find a way to tap into his raw power, he'll run the risk of falling into more of a utility-type profile.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Swats first homer in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans went 2-for-5 with his first home run of the season for Double-A New Hampshire on Thursday.

Out since May 18 while managing a sore back, Groshans made a quick impact in his return to the lineup Thursday. The 21-year-old has a seven-game hitting streak extending back to before his layoff, and he's slashing .261/.358/.370 with a 7:15 BB:K through 12 contests in his first look at upper-minors pitching.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Dealing with sore back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans hasn't played at Double-A New Hampshire since May 18 due to mild lower-back soreness, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The Blue Jays don't appear to be overly concerned about the injury and believe that with some extra rest, Groshans will be able to avoid an extended absence. The 21-year-old dabbled at both shortstop and third base through his first 11 games with New Hampshire, batting .244 with no home runs and no stolen bases while striking out 13 times in 48 plate appearances (27.1 percent).

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Will split time at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans will split his time between shortstop and third base for Double-A New Hampshire, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

The Jays want to continue the 21-year-old's development at short, but with Austin Martin on the Fisher Cats as well, Groshans will shift to the hot corner when Martin is at the six. Third base is still the most likely home in the majors for Groshans, but at the very least, this suggests the organization isn't sold on Bo Bichette sticking at shortstop in the long term.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Heading to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans will open the season with Double-A New Hampshire, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Groshans has only played 71 career professional games, none of which have come above Low-A, but he's still on track in his development even after the canceled minor-league season last year. He's unlikely to make his major-league debut this season but is on track to do so next year if he looks good in the upper minors.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Bound for minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays reassigned Groshans to their minor-league camp Thursday.

Groshans was one of 25 players the Blue Jays sent to minor-league camp in their latest round of roster cuts. The 21-year-old third baseman is one of the top position prospects in the organization, but the Blue Jays likely aren't counting on him making any contributions in the majors in 2021 with Cavan Biggio and Vladimir Guerrero slated to handle most of the work at the hot corner. Groshans will likely head to Double-A New Hampshire or High-A Vancouver when the minor-league season begins.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Thinks he's ready for bigs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans, who has added about 20 pounds of muscle to his frame since he played at Low-A in 2019, is out to prove he's ready to make his major-league debut, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports. "I know a lot of people will think I'm crazy for that, but I'm ready," Groshans said this week. "I think I've been ready for that. I'm here to show everybody that I'm ready to be in the big leagues."

The 21-year-old has gotten more explosive as well as bigger, and after spending last season at the Jays' alternate training site, Groshans feels he's better prepared mentally for the next challenge as well. With Marcus Semien signed to a one-year deal to handle second base, it's highly unlikely Groshans will be able to force his way onto the big-league roster this year no matter how he looks in camp, but a strong showing this season in the high minors will position him to join Austin Martin as the next wave of hitting talent to join the Jays in 2022.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Joining big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans received an invitation Friday to the Blue Jays' major-league spring training, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

The 2018 first-round pick spent last season at the alternate training site, so he still received some developmental work despite the canceled minor-league season. Groshans last appeared at the Low-A level in 2019 and had a .909 OPS in 23 games, and he could begin 2021 at Double-A with a strong showing at spring training.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Joins 60-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans will be a part of the Blue Jays' 60-man roster.

Groshans started the 2019 campaign in the Midwest League with Low-A Lansing, where he hit .337/.427/.482 with two home runs and 13 RBI over 95 plate appearances before suffering a left foot injury in mid-May that ended his season. However, the 20-year-old is fully healthy heading into the 2020 campaign and will get a chance to develop with the team's 60-man roster once play resumes.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans said in an interview with Jim Callis of MLB.com earlier this month that he made a full recovery from the left foot injury that sidelined him from mid-May onward last season. "Mostly just being flexible, being able to move quicker, faster," Groshans said, regarding what he focused on this offseason once he became healthy again. "I lost a little bit of body fat, put some muscle on just to try and get stronger. I actually feel lighter, faster and stronger than I did last year."

Groshans' 2020 debut looks like it will have to wait until at least mid-May after Major League Baseball recently announced the start of the season would be pushed back eight weeks or more, but he'll at least head into his third pro campaign with a clean bill of health. Before the sore left foot sidelined him, Groshans more than held his own in the Midwest League, posting a .337/.427/.482 slash line (167 wRC+). He'll likely start the season with Low-A Lansing but could be in store for a quick promotion to High-A Dunedin if he resumes raking at the plate right away.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans (foot) has been shut down for the rest of the season, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

He was in the midst of a breakout season but an undisclosed left foot injury limited him to just 23 games for Low-A Lansing. In that time, he hit .337/.427/.482 with two home runs and one steal in 96 plate appearances. Groshans has a chance to develop into a five-category fantasy contributor on the left side of the infield. If he really impresses in spring training, it's possible he could open the year at High-A, but he will likely head back to the Midwest League to begin 2020.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Back on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans is back on the 7-day injured list with Low-A Lansing with a recurrence of general soreness in his left foot.

He was out from April 29 until May 8 with the same issue and it's a little concerning that he landed right back on the IL a week after being activated. The team may conduct some tests to try to better assess the issue.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans (foot) has gone 2-for-8 with a walk and four strikeouts in two games with Low-A Lansing since his return from the injured list.

Groshans had been on an incredible run before the foot issue cropped up, slashing .342/.429/.507 in his first 19 games with a full-season affiliate, and it shouldn't be long before he's back to punishing Low-A pitching. The bat is clearly advanced for his age (19), and with good athleticism at third base, Groshans already ranks among the team's top prospects behind Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans was placed on the minor-league injured list with general soreness in his left foot, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Groshans was tearing it up with Low-A Lansing prior to landing on the IL, slashing .342/.429/.507 with a pair of homers and a stolen base through 19 games. Fortunately, the injury isn't thought to be anything that will force the 19-year-old to miss an extended chunk of time.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Fast start at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans went 1-for-4 with a walk, a double, a run scored and an RBI for Low-A Lansing on Friday.

The 12th overall pick in the 2018 draft is off to a quick start in his first taste of full-season ball, slashing .364/.451/.523 through 12 games. Groshans is showing strong plate discipline with a 7:10 BB:K, and the 19-year-old appears to be headed for a breakout campaign.

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Off to hot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Groshans is hitting .373/.437/.582 with four home runs in 29 games (126 plate appearances) in the Gulf Coast League.

Selected by the Blue Jays with the No. 12 overall pick in this year's draft, Groshans was seen as a prep third baseman with a lot of offensive upside, and so far it looks like the Jays nailed the pick. His batting average is obviously a bit inflated (.420 BABIP), but his 15.9 percent strikeout rate and 9.5 percent walk rate are excellent indicators. He missed a week at the beginning of August for an undisclosed reason, and is 0-for-6 in the two games since he returned to the lineup. Groshans could soon receive a promotion to a more advanced league, and should be viewed as one of the top fantasy prospects from this year's draft class.
