Everyone that knows the Toronto Blue Jays' minor league system knows that they have parted ways with a lot of good prospects over the last few years in trades. Though that has left them depleted from where they would have been, it should not be suggested that they have no one of value down there. Take a look at their top five prospects and whether their stock is up or down in 2014.

Though his strikeouts are a little high, Davis has shown some run production. He has a .262 average with 5 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run and 15 RBI. The good outweighs the bad right now as he should be able to knock that k-rate down as he improves.

Lefties with a decent chance for success are always carrying high stock but Norris is taking it to another level in 2014. Through three starts in A advanced, he has 0.60 ERA with a 0.87 WHIP. He also has 17 strikeouts to only 3 walks.

Osuna has promise but right now he is looking like he will miss most of 2014 recovering from Tommy John Surgery. We'll have to wait and see how he looks upon returning to see if his stock goes back up quickly. He is plenty young enough to make up for the time lost.

Through four starts in triple-A, Stroman has been very impressive. He has a 2.18 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched. That has got to be very impressive to team officials looking forward to filling out next season's rotation.

As well they should, the Blue Jays are keeping Sanchez and giving him time to properly develop. Signs in 2014 point to him soon being able to reward their patience. Through five starts he has a 2.66 ERA and a pretty good WHIP to go along with it.
