Jake Marisnick Promoted To The Lansing Lugnuts
















LANSING, Mich. – The Lansing Lugnuts, in conjunction with the Toronto Blue Jays, announced Sunday that outfielder Jake Marisnick has been received from the GCL Blue Jays (Rookie – Gulf Coast League) while infielder Randy Schwartz has been placed on the 7-day Disabled List retroactive to July 30th.

Marisnick, 19, was the Blue Jays’ 3rd round selection in the 2009 Draft.  In 35 games in the GCL, he batted .287 with three home runs, 14 RBIs, 14 stolen bases, and an OPS of .832.

Navin over at Sports And The City did a nice piece on him last year.  You should definitely check it out.

His Minor League numbers look a little something like this:

That's it.  A month and 10 days of pro baseball and he's moving up the ladder already. 

If you've been following him on Twitter then you will already know that the brain trust held him back for a couple of months in an extended spring training.  Then they decided to turn him loose in Rookie Ball.  It's hard to judge him on such a small sample size so.....enter our boy Jesse.  He will be watching Jake rather closely from the broadcast booth and I have already requested an interview.

In his first game with Lansing playing CF and hitting 7th, Jake went 2 for 3 with a double and 2 RBI, one of which came with 2 out. 

Prediction:

You will not be able to take a look at this scouting report from last year without touching yourself.

  1. I'm hoping to get out to Lansing in a couple of weeks and take in a game; looking forward to seeing Jake play.

    And you were right about that scouting report ... GIGGITY.

  2. Yeah I thought you would enjoy that.

    Haven't you seen enough pro ball parks for one season this year pal? 30 MLB and Vegas if I remember correctly makes 31, right?

    That is a trip I could see myself making if you want a wing man. I know a guy that may be able to get us tickets.....

  3. Even though it's just rookie ball (and one great game in A), it sure doesn't seem like his hit tool is such a project. For a guy that was billed as all tools but no bat, at least for now, he sure is showing a pretty polished approach at the plate. One of the most intriguing, and potentially highest upside, of the Jays prospects if you ask me. Looking forward to any reports you guys have after you see him.

  4. Ryan,
    I am just as excited to hear back from our scouting staff as you clearly are.....

    Q: What is better than 1 young high ceiling CF prospect?

    A: 2 young high ceiling CF prospects.
