Salt River 4 – Phoenix 2 – Oct 15, 2012
Jake Marisnick was the only Blue Jays prospect to make the Salt River lineup on Monday. He went 1 for 4 with a strikeout and a double on a sharply hit line drive to left field. He grounded out in two other at-bats. Blue Jays brass are watching closely with Marisnick to help determine a timeline for his eventual promotion to the Majors. He has had a slow start to the Arizona Fall League hitting .133/.235/.267 in with two doubles, a walk and 6 strikeouts. If he puts together a strong AFL run and a strong 2013, he could position himself to compete for a spot in the Toronto outfield as early as the Fall of 2013.
