DateQuestionAnswer
2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)John Gibbons said yesterday that, if the Blue Jays roster remained unchanged between now and the start of the season, he'd love to see Dalton Pompey out there in CF. Let's assume that only one OF is signed to replace Colby Rasmus and Melky Cabrera (assuming he doesn't return): is there any realistic chance of Pompey making the Opening Day roster and playing CF/LF ahead of both Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar?
(Nick from London, UK)
There's absolutely a chance of that. Pompey impressed a ton this year and the offensive/defensive potential projects to play in a big way at the MLB level. He's got the all-around skills to be a far better player than Gose or Pillar, and if he shows even reasonably well in spring training, he could walk away with the Opening Day job and never look back. Pompey's real....very real and he's going to be a factor in Toronto sooner than people realize. (Mark Anderson)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Welcome to the big leagues, Kevin Pillar. Shot to be a good regular?
(marjinwalker from Land of Make Believe)
I haven't seen him personally, but a scout that I really trust says this: "Second-division regular. The kid has good instincts and has hit everywhere. Heck, he may be an everyday guy at some point." (Jason Cole)
