    Blue Jays DFA starting pitcher Vince Perkins, their 10th best prospect


    Blue Jays designated RHP Vince Perkins for assignment.
    Rather than Ryan Houston or John Hattig? Hattig is still sort of interesting, but he's a 26-year-old third baseman and we can't imagine the Jays will have room for him any year soon. Houston has never been much of a prospect. We'd be very surprised if Perkins went unclaimed. It'd be a high price to pay just to get Brian Tallet on the roster for two weeks.

    The action on Perkins' heavy 93-96 sinking fastball has been linkened to a bowling ball and its a true out pitch. he throws a hard 86-87 slider and a developing changeup with high marks for mound presence and makeup.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
