    Team to watch
    Double-A New Hampshire will open the season with a loaded roster that features a trio of Top 100 prospects and 10 of Toronto's Top 30 prospects. Right-hander Sean Reid-Foley (No. 62 overall) headlines a talented Fisher Cats' rotation that should also include Conner Greene, Jon Harris and Francisco Rios. Offensively, New Hampshire will have a pair of dynamic up-the-middle players in center fielder Anthony Alford (No. 68) and shortstop Richard Urena (No. 91). And be sure to key an eye on Class A Lansing, where Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (No. 32) and 2016 second-rounder Bo Bichette are set to make their full-season debuts.

    Outfielder Joshua Palacios, Toronto's fourth-round Draft pick last June, initially broke camp with Class A Lansing but now will open the season on the disabled list with what's viewed as a "minor setback." Palacios connected on his first professional home run this spring while appearing in parts of eight games with the Blue Jays.
