Blue Jays' top prospects revealed

Kyle Drabek There's no better example of the instant impact Alex Anthopoulos has had on the Blue Jays than their No. 3 prospect as rated by Baseball America .

Outfielder Anthony Gose is third in the Toronto system, according to the magazine's annual rankings, but he's a relative newcomer. The Phillies acquired Gose from the Phillies in the three-team deal that sent Roy Oswalt to Philadelphia and Brett Wallace to Houston. To get Wallace, the Blue Jays sent Michael Taylor to the A's. Taylor was one of the three prospects Toronto got from Philadelphia in exchange for Roy Halladay, along with Kyle Drabek (pictured) and Travis D'Arnaud.

Drabek, by the way, is the team's top prospect, according to the list, and D'Arnaud is fourth. Four of the team's top five prospects came in trades. In addition to Drabek, Gose and D'Arnaud, right-hander Zach Stewart came over from the Reds in the trade for Scott Rolen (that was before Anthopoulos came aboard).

Here's the Top 10:
1. Kyle Drabek, rhp
2. Deck McGuire, rhp
3. Anthony Gose, of
4. Travis D'Arnaud, c

Toronto leaning right

The Toronto Blue Jays had a total of four first-round picks, including three in the compensation picks, and all four were used on right-handed pitchers.

The Blue Jays' first pick was Geogia Tech's Deck McGuire at 11, followed by California high schooler Aaron Sanchez (34), Texas high schooler Noah Syndergaard (38) and Asher Wojciechowski (41) from The Citadel.
