Pitching is extremely important to every MLB team. It is so important to the Toronto Blue Jays in fact that a better performance from the starting pitchers is the main reason the boys in blue from north of the border are playing well this season. So how does the future pitching scene look for the Blue Jays. Take a look at their top 5 pitching prospects and decide what you think. It seems that they are doing quite well indeed.
With four appearances and two starts, Tirado has a 3.27 ERA and 2.09 WHIP. The WHIP is high but numbers can take a hit when relief appearances come along.
Norris is killing it this year. Through four starts he has a 0.95 ERA and 0.95 WHIP. It just doesn't get much better than that.
Osuna is promising enough to be among the top prospects overall for the Jays but he has yet to pitch in 2014.
Stroman looks great through four starts in 2014 with a 2.18 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He is good enough that he could easily be the number one prospect for the Jays and a lot of other teams.
Sanchez is why Stroman isn't the number one prospect for the Jays of course and for good reason. He has five starts under his belt this year and looks to have zero slow down in him at all with a 2.66 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.
