An end of season look at stat leaders from the entire Blue Jays organization
The batting stats we’ve used are hits, doubles, triples, home runs and stolen bases, and the rate stats OBP, wRC+ (considered the best measure of a batter. 100 is average) and BB/K.
The pitching stats: ERA, FIP, starters’ ERA and FIP (since relievers would usually lead in straight up ERA and FIP), HR/9, GB%, and K-BB% (strikeout percentage minus walk percentage).
(the bolded names are the organization’s full season leader in the respective category. The short season leader is underlined)
(cut off was half of a team’s total games played. Stats are mined from Fangraphs)
(Andres Martinez led DSL in a few categories but was recently released)
Rafael Lopez added the OBP category to his impressive breakout campaign as Roemon Fields tailed off a bit at the end of the season. Fields dominated the organization with 50 steals between two levels.
In AA, Anthony Alford reemerged on the leaderboard with his strong return from injury. He led all three rate stats for New Hampshire. J.D. Davis, Tim Lopes, Gunnar Heidt and Richard Urena retained holds on their respective categories.
Max Pentecost disappears from the leaderboard after a difficult end to his year. Connor Panas‘ strong finish landed him HR and wRC+ in addition to the OBP he already held. Cavan Biggio added BB/K to his triples lead. D.J. Davis and Juan Kelly retained their leads.
Single A Lansing’s Nick Sinay wrested SB from Edward Olivares (Sinay also led the organization in hit by pitches). Vladimir Guerrero Jr, and Bo Bichette still retained their organizational rate stat leads while Olivares maintained his hold on HR, 3B and added H.
The GCL Blue Jays’ Davis Schneider and Dominic Abbadessa remained prominent and Luis de los Santos appeared in two categories.
(cutoff is different per level. Roughly, 75 IP for starters and 40 IP for relievers)
(Carlos Ramirez didn’t appear enough at any of his three levels to qualify but overall, obviously, was fantastic this year)
In July, Marcus Stroman and Roberto Osuna dominated the leaderboard but post season, Dominic Leone and J.A. Happ appear with strong second halves. Yes, the “struggling” Osuna lead the organization in FIP and K-BB%.
Cesar Valdez lost his starter ERA/FIP leads to Luis Santos and Brett Oberholtzer respectively due to injury. Mike Bolsinger retained the overall ERA/FIP leads. (Chris Rowley qualified for both AA and AAA)
Converted shortstop Emerson Jimenez led the short season leagues with a 0.00 ERA (although we were on the fence as to whether he should qualify). GCL’s Maverik Buffo burst onto the scene and led the short season leagues in starter’s ERA/FIP and FIP overall.
