MESA, Arizona —— Just as we did with an earlier post, here you can see Toronto Blue Jays first base/designated hitter prospect Ryan McBroom take a few swings in the Arizona Fall League in October of 2016 for the Mesa Solar Sox, all in GIF format. McBroom, who spent the 2016 season with the Dunedin Blue Jays in the difficult Florida State League, showed out well in the Arizona Fall League during his month with Mesa, and takes that momentum into 2017 and beyond.
Here’s the part two list of GIFs of McBroom, taken during his time in the AFL in October, 2016:
McBroom figures to be a part of the Blue Jays’ long term future plans, and could get a significant look at first base by 2018. First, though, he must prove that a very short 2016 stint that didn’t go so well in Double-A can be corrected and overcome. There’s no question about his raw power, and the ball jumps off his bat. But can he do enough around that in other areas of the game to be a productive prospect and, in turn, a decent big leaguer with the Jays one day?
As we are fond of saying at this point in the offseason… only time will tell for the West Virginia University product.
