The 2016 Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook is Here!
By Jay Blue
Blue Jays from Away

After a long offseason, the 2016 Blue Jays season has finally arrived, and after many hours of work, the 2016 Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook has also arrived!

The 2016 edition of the Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook, by Jay Blue, is now available! The 2016 edition updates all of the players in the Blue Jays’ minor league system and adds profiles for all of the 2015 draftees as well as the newest players signed for the minor league system. We have also updated the sections for each of the Blue Jays’ minor league teams including schedules and coaching staffs and have included updated depth charts.

The Blue Jays traded away a large number of prospects in 2015 and to commemorate this, we present a special, long-form essay by Jay Blue entitled “Dearly Departed” that will be exclusive to the 2016 Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook. Featuring interviews with various players who left the Blue Jays’ system in 2015 (and one who returned), this section gives you behind-the-scenes access into what happens on the ground when a player is traded, released or retires.

Included in the 2016 edition are:
_ Histories and profiles of all seven North American Blue Jays affiliates including the Buffalo Bisons, New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Dunedin Blue Jays, Lansing Lugnuts, Vancouver Canadians, Bluefield Blue Jays and Gulf Coast League Blue Jays

_ Over 250 player profiles including every player anticipated to play in the Blue Jays’ minor league system in 2015

_ A new essay by author Jay Blue, “Dearly Departed,” featuring interviews with Jays’ minor leaguers

_ Ticket, travel and city information to help you plan any trips to see the Baby Jays play

_ Complete minor league schedules

_ Broadcast information to help you follow along with the teams and players from wherever you are

_ Minor league depth charts

_ A 2015 draft review

How to Order
Just like last year, the 2016 Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook will be combined with the Premium Content Section of Blue Jays from Away, offering a “live” version of the ebook will also include photos, exclusive videos (as they become available) and updates on the players’ 2016 seasons. The Premium Content section will also include exclusive scouting reports as Jay Blue visits the Blue Jays’ minor league teams at various points throughout the 2016 season. You can access the Premium Content section for just $1.99 (CDN) per month, or, for the low price of just $16.99 (CDN), you can get an one-year subscription AND a downloadable PDF copy of the 2016 Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook.

And, at long last, there is a print edition of the 2016 Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook now available at Lulu.com for $29.99. The print edition has been slimmed down a little bit but we haven’t cut any of our profiles or exclusive content. It runs almost 500 pages and looks a little like this:

Early this week, all of the player profiles will be uploaded to the Premium Content section of the website, likely by the end of Monday. We’ll then re-index the home page (when the minor league rosters are announced on Monday) and link players’ pages to our published scouting reports. We also have several more Quick Hit Scouting Reports to come and some editing and uploading of some video we took down in Florida. Then, Jay Blue will be in Lansing for their season-opening series against Great Lakes starting on Thursday night!

It’s a busy week with lots of content to come online, bringing together the 2016 Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook and the Blue Jays from Away Premium Content section which bring you the best coverage of the Toronto Blue Jays’ minor league system anywhere!
