Prospects on Deck: LHP Nick Allgeyer – Blue Jays

The Dunedin Blue Jays finished at the top of the Florida State League North Division in the first half of the season with a 41-24 record.  They are off to a hot start once again, 12-4 since the All Star break.  One of the primary reasons for their success has been LHP Nick Allgeyer.

Allgeyer was drafted by Toronto in the 12th round in 2018, out of Iowa.  He was First-team All Big Ten and two time Pitcher of the Week during the 2018 season.  He pitched 26.1 innings for short-season Vancouver in 2018, with 31 strikeouts with a 2.73 ERA and 1.03 WHIP.   This season with Dunedin, Allgeyer is among the league leaders in several categories; including 3rd in Wins (6), 4th in WHIP (1.10), 8th in Strikeouts (79) in 78.1 innings.

Allgeyer’s performance on the mound earned him a spot as the starting pitcher for FSL North All Stars. He was joined by fellow pitchers Graham Spraker and Brad Wilson, third baseman Cullen Large and catcher Riley Adams (recently promoted to Double A).  The core of this crew, along with outfielders Ryan Noda (#21 Blue Jays prospect) Cal Stevenson (#24 Blue Jays prospect) and Demi Orimoloye.  Dunedin leads the FSL in team Batting Average (.257), OPS (.729), RBIs (366) and Doubles (147).  Toronto fans should keep tabs on this crew.

This combination on the mound and at the plate will continue to put the Blue Jays in the drivers seat in the FSL North and the current favorite to capture the FSL Championship in the September.
