2018 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT WATCH: DANNY JANSEN CATCHER TORONTO BLUE JAYS

When a catching prospect that can handle the bat gets promoted to the major leagues, it is always a "stop what your doing and take a closer look" kind of moment given the utter dearth of players who can contribute offensively in today's fantasy baseball.  Just such a player got the call on Sunday as the Toronto Blue Jays promoted Danny Jansen from the minors on Sunday with the plan on giving him a long look given the advanced age of Russell Martin.  Just 23 years old, Jansen was hitting .275 with 12 home runs in just 360 at-bats and even more impressive was the advanced numbers here as well which speak to how good a hitter the kid already is.  Consider that Jansen put up a very impressive 13.6 K/9 and an even better 12.2 BB/9.  That shows that Jansen knows how to recognize pitchers at an advanced level already and that he could be a very rare average hitter to go with the power at the major league level in due time.  Given the expected long look he is slated to receive, Jansen is worth an add everywhere.
