15. Toronto Blue Jays

Swapping Brett Lawrie for Josh Donaldson was a smart move for the Blue Jays to boost the offense. Shipping Adam Lind off also allows Edwin Encarnacion to take over at first base. Let’s not forget the huge addition of Russel Martin at catcher, another boost to the offense. The only thing holding the Blue jays back at this point is how young their starting pitching behind veterans Mark Buehrle and R.A. Dickey. Drew Hutchinson is 24, Marcus Stroman is 23, and Aaron Sanchez is 22. Stroman was very good last year, but can that production hold up? The Blue Jays young pitchers need to show that they can perform well, and that needs to happen if they hope to keep up in a tight A.L East.

    How do you not mention Justin Morneau in the Rockies section when you talk about how much talent they have? He just won the batting title…
