Jays Sending Two Prospects to Hawaii
Each team will play 40 games during the 2006 season which runs from October 1 through November 22. Our inaugural season was in 1993 with continuous seasons running through 1997. The league returns in 2006 for its sixth season.
The level of professional baseball play is primarily at the A & AA level. Top prospects from MLB in the U.S., and the professional leagues in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China are chosen by their respective organizations to develop their skills.
InsideTheDome has learned that the Blue Jays will be sending two outfield prospects, Ryan Patterson and Eric Nielsen to the league next month.
The 23-year-old Patterson batted .288 with 19 home runs and 69 runs batted in with the Dunedin Blue Jays, before being promoted to Double-A New Hampshire for the final 49 games of the season, and hitting .257 with 6 home runs and 20 runs batted in.
The 24-year-old Nielsen batted .286 in 115 games with Dunedin, hitting 6 home runs and 47 runs batted in.
