Vancouver Canadians Max Pentecost

Max Pentecost is the highest-rated prospect among former Vancouver Canadians in the Blue Jays system by Baseball America.


Baseball America also released its mid-season Top 10 prospects in the Jays system, half of them with C’s connections.

  • 5. Max Pentecost, C
  • 7. Justin Maese, RHP
  • 8. Sean Reid-Foley, RHP
  • 9. T.J. Zeuch, RHP
  • 10. Logan Warmoth, SS

Also, the broadcasters for each Blue Jays minor league affiliate were surveyed by Jesse Goldberg-Strassler on the Week 15 edition of the Around The Nest podcast on who possesses the best tools in the system. Players with C’s connections are highlighted in yellow.

Around The Nest Tools Survey

16 players who passed through Vancouver made it on the survey. 2014 lefty Tim Mayza was a two-time winner in terms of velocity and secondary stuff for the Buffalo Bisons while 2014 teammate—outfielder Jonathan Davis—was deemed to have the best speed and glove for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

About Niall O'Donohoe

My name is Niall O’Donohoe and I am an avid follower of baseball, specifically Canada’s Teams – the Toronto Blue Jays and their affiliate, the Vancouver Canadians. My blog beginnings began in 2007 with Batter’s Box, where I’m still allowed to write stories, summaries and photos about the Blue Jays minor league system under the alias #2JBrumfield.

The blog formerly known as Niall On Baseball, C’s Plus Baseball follows the C’s from behind the lens at Nat Bailey Stadium. The reason for the name change was to reflect the main purpose of this blog, which is to deliver plus coverage of the C’s through photos and observations of the players striving to make it to the major leagues, be it with Toronto or one of the other 29 MLB teams. From time to time, I do make it to other baseball games outside of The Nat and will post about them here as well.
