Hot Takes From the Farm: Week Five

Starting off this week, I note that the full season teams are about 1/4 of the way through their season, and that several players on the pre-season prospect have graduated so it seems like a good time to do our first revision to that list. Again, this particular list is my own personal judgement, driven by publicly available information but not reflective of any one specific evaluator.  Some of these players held position or even climbed a notch or two without the performance you might expect to account for such a result simply because so many players have graduated from prospect status this year. Since the pre-season prospects lists were all published, fully six Blue jays players have lost their eligibility for prospect status. Trent Thornton and Elvis Luciano just this last Saturday as the season is now 45 days old. Here’s my revised list.
