Two Jays Named to Top 20 FSL Prospect List
Purcey, who was ranked ninth on the list, throws a fastball in the 91-to-95 MPH range and has a dangerous knee buckling curveball to go with his changeup and slider.
"Right now I am working hard on developing my slider, but I believe my fastball, curveball and changeup are pretty solid pitches for me" Purcey told InsideTheDome.
The second Blue Jays to be named on the list came at No. 13 and that was Adam Lind. Also drafted in 2004, the outfielder hit .313 with 12 home runs and 84 RBI in 495 at bats with Dunedin this season. Lind was selected as a Florida State League All-Star this season after ranking in the league's top five in batting average (2ND, .313), RBI (T-4th, 84), hits (2nd, 155), doubles (1st, 42), extra base hits (1st, 58) and runs scored (T-4th, 80). In his first two seasons in the organization covering 196 games, the 22-year-old native of Anderson, Indiana has batted .313 with 19 home runs and 134 RBI.
Purcey and Lind are the third and fourth Blue Jays to be honored by Baseball America. Jesse Litsch was named as the No. 6 prospect in the Appalachian League on September 20 and two days later Ryan Patterson was named as the No. 17 prospect in the NY-Penn League.
