P- Drew Pomeranz (vs. Philadelphia Phillies) $6,700. I am loving the price of Drew Pomeranz for Thursday. He is facing an offense who is not potent by any means and he has shown a small sample size of success against the Phillies throughout his career.
In only 16 at bats total, he is holding the Phillies to a .188 opposing batting average and 3 strikeouts. I know that isn’t a lot of history, but it’s some success. During his first start of the 2016 season, he threw 5 innings giving up 2 earned runs, walking 3, and striking out 7 at Colorado, which isn’t an easy place to pitch.
I love his K rate, but he must throw 6 to 7 innings to be a big asset on Thursday.
P- Ervin Santana (vs. Chicago White Sox) $8,100. Ervin Santana has dominated the Chicago White Sox lineup throughout his career. In 110 career at bats, the White Sox lineup is only hitting .182 against him with 22 strikeouts.
I expect another strong outing from Santana against a team who he has had no trouble with in the past.
C- Jose Lobaton (vs. Julio Teheran) In 15 career at bats against Teheran, Lobaton is hitting .467 with 2 home runs, 5 RBI’s, 3 XBH, and a .556 OBP. I love Lobaton as a cheap option assuming he starts.
Make sure to follow this game as there is a chance Lobaton doesn’t start considering he is the backup to Wilson Ramos. If he does, he could be a bargain buy at this price.

The Blue Jays have used their system well to acquire several key pieces from other organizations via trade over recent years.
Despite all of the prospects that have left, several are still on their way to the Majors for the big club and several are highly touted.
In 2014, the Blue Jays will try to erase a 21 year playoff drought. Will the franchise part with some more of its youth, or may they hold steady with the personnel in the MiLB?

The 2nd move was to also trade Travis d’Arnaud and Buck for R.A.Dickey. However the moves backfired on them in 2013.
What is worse for the team, is the franchise has not been able to develop their own talent over the last several years. Their best players on the club were all brought in via trades.
Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion were absolute steals for the guys they doled out to reel them in (Robinson Diaz, never played in the Majors for Pit in the Joey Bats deal, and they originally acquired in the Scott Rolen traded to Cincy. He was selected off of waivers by Oakland, before he came to the club via Free Agency.
