2016 Top 56 prospects
8. Andrew Yerzy – C – 2016 – Toronto, ON
Yerzy jumps out with his 6-3/208 build and his huge strength from the left side of the plate, although his swing is notably calm for the power and bat speed he produces. He’ll be one of the top Canadian prospects in the 2016 class.
26. Zachary Fascia – C – 2016 – Brampton, ON
Fascia has a prototypical catcher’s build at 6-1/200 and has well rounded defensive skills and tools. Along with being a left handed hitter with quick hands at the plate, the young Canadian also was up to 88 mph on the mound.
2017 Top 25 Prospects
24. Malik Williams – 1B – 2017 – Toronto, ON
