David Paulino: Non-Waiver Deadline and Happ Deal

david paulino: The Jays' non-waiver deadline dealing added five prospects to their top 30, according to the MLB Pipeline right-hander Hector Perez, acquired in the Roberto Osuna trade, at No. 11; outfielder Billy McKinney, part of the J.A. Happ deal, at No. 19; right-hander David Paulino Osuna No. 20; shortstop Santiago Espinal Steve Pearce at No. 24; and outfielder Forrest Wall Seunghwan Oh at No. 26, according to Toronto Star. David Paulino was among Houston's top pitching prospects before a PED suspension and injuries. But the depth of the Blue Jays' farm system, now ranked fifth in all of baseball by MLB Pipeline, keeps getting stronger. Rich Schultz / GETTY IMAGES There's the potential to add more in August, if Toronto can engineer deals for any of their free-agent eligible players, including former MVP Josh Donaldson. Guerrero, recently promoted to Triple-A Buffalo, is the top-ranked prospect in baseball, and four more Jays up-and-comers are in MLB Pipeline's top 100 Bichette ninth catcher Danny Jansen 73rd right-hander Nate Pearson 90th and outfielder Anthony Alford 92nd . As for organizations, only two in the American League are ranked ahead of Toronto the Chicago White Sox at No. 3, and Tampa Bay at No. 4. But their rebuild has a pretty good foundation.
