Basically, a nice writeup on this potential placeholder for V Guerrero if Josh Donaldson is traded in the next several months.
These days, he is doing it as the leading hitter for the Blue Jays’ top farm club in Buffalo. His performance has been a pleasant surprise. Nobody has Leblebijian on their top prospects’ list, and during his first few years in the minors, he looked like classic roster-filler material. His ability to play every infield position with aplomb helped his case, but he certainly struck no one as a maestro with the bat.
Then, two years ago, while playing at low Class-A Lansing for a third season, a tip from a minor-league instructor tweaked his swing, boosted his confidence and propelled his career in a new direction.
Entering Thursday’s action, Leblebijian (pronounced Leb-leh-BEE-jian) was slashing .310/.405/.540. His .944 OPS ranked sixth in the International League.
