Vancouver Canadians Joel Bonnett

#38. Joel Bonnett – Bullpen Coach

Notes – Joined Blue Jays organization in 2022 after four-plus years as pitching coach with Benedictine University…Also a pitching coach with Hendrix College, Southwest Minnesota State University and University of Illinois-Springfield.

Season Highlight – C’s relievers racked up 34 saves, second most in the Northwest League.


All things considered, 2022 was a great season for the Vancouver Canadians as they returned to Nat Bailey Stadium for the first time since COVID cancelled the 2022 campaign and kept the club in Hillsboro in 2021. It didn’t end the way the club wanted it to but they made the playoffs for the first time since 2017.

There were a lot of positive developments such as the emergence of Addison Barger and Ricky Tiedemann and Yosver Zulueta with the latter two earning a berth in the MLB Future Stars Game. All three could very well be in a Toronto Blue Jays uniform in 2023 if they continue their current rate of development.

The Canadian Canadians Damiano Palmegiani and Dasan Brown helped spearhead the offence in the second half along with Rainer Nuñez and Gabby Martinez who arrived from Dunedin in August to solidify the lineup.

Fan favourite Steward Berroa electrified the fans with his ability to steal bases at will before being sidelined with a wrist injury. Miguel Hiraldo had his moments with his powerful bat and on the basepaths. Leo Jiménez was a steady defender at short and was starting to sting the ball before the injury bug struck. Alex De Jesus and 2022 draft pick Michael Turconi helped pick up the slack in the middle infield. De Jesus was acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for hard-throwing righty Nick Frasso who had a scintillating Northwest League debut in Everett on the 4th of July.

Catchers Zach Britton earned a call-up to New Hampshire after showing a good eye at the plate and Andrés Sosa filled the void with his scorching bat in July and August. P.K. Morris held down the fort with solid two-way play at first base and delivered timely hits with runners in scoring position and Garrett Spain showed off his rocket launcher of an arm in the outfield.

On the mound, Sem Robberse also got a call to New Hampshire after displaying poise on the mound. Chad Dallas had a scintillating pro debut before experiencing some ups and downs but he managed to finish up strong and was lauded as a great teammate by the C’s coaching staff during the team’s year-end awards ceremony. Lefties Jimmy Robbins, Trenton Wallace, and righthander Alejandro Melean improved after arriving in YVR, with Melan and Robbins getting the call to Double-A. Dahian Santos overcame a tough start after arriving from Dunedin and showed promise in his final two starts of the year.

The one constant all year long was Abdiel Mendoza who started the year in the bullpen before joining the rotation down the stretch and being recognized as the team’s best pitcher. Garrett Farmer proved to be a valuable addition after being let go by Baltimore. Lefty Naswell Paulino toggled between the rotation and the pen and soaked up valuable innings along the way.

Other early-season bullpen contributors were Thomas Ruwe, Jol Concepcion and Juan Nuñez before they moved on to New Hampshire. Matt Svanson and 2022 draftees such as T.J. Brock, Mason Fluharty and Connor Cooke helped fill the void.

Manager Brent Lavallee kept a steady hand on the till as the club went 14-9 in July and 16-11 in August to give the club a 67-62 record to nail down a berth in the Northwest League final. The C’s recorded 42 come-from-behind wins and walked off the opposition seven times at the Nat.

It was nice to see baseball return to Vancouver after an excruciating three-year absence caused by the pandemic. I like to thank all the players, coaches and the organization for a memorable season. The countdown is on for April 7, 2023 for the home and regular season opener against Spokane. Thanks a million for reading!
