Anthony Alford sent back down to minors Thursday

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Anthony Alford was optioned back down to the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on Thursday, the team announced.

Fantasy Impact

Alford had been promoted in the wake of the trade that sent outfielder Kevin Pillar to the San Francisco Giants, but it seems like that move was only temporary until the Blue Jays were able to settle their roster and officially add Sócrates Brito and Alen Hanson. Alford will return to the minors where he will continue to work on his offensive consistency in hopes of being able to better utilize his raw power and speed.

Anthony Alford gets the call up after earlier Kevin Pillar trade

Anthony Alford has been recalled from the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons following the Kevin Pillar trade on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Alford, Toronto's 11th ranked prospect, will likely get starts in center field for the Blue Jays now that they've traded Kevin Pillar to the Giants. We will see when the Blue Jays decide to start him up.

Anthony Alford hits two homers on Friday

Anthony Alford went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo homers as a Blue Jays split-squad shut out a Pirates split-squad 11-0 on Friday in Grapefruit League action.

Fantasy Impact

Alford has been a highly regarded prospect for years but can't seem to break into the majors. Alford has the power but strikes out too often with a 26.9% average in Triple A last season. Alford is trying to earn a backup role with the team but more than likely the Jays will want him playing everyday in the minors to start the year.

Anthony Alford to DL with hamate fracture

Anthony Alford has been placed on the 10-Day DL with a hamate fracture in his left hand, per Ben Nicholson-Smith. Alford had his first MLB hit on Tuesday night, a double.

Fantasy Impact

This is madness. If you have any Blue Jays on your fantasy roster, wrap them in bubble wrap. Dwight Smith Jr. was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.

Anthony Alford, top Blue Jays prospect, called up on Friday

Top Blue Jays prospect Anthony Alford was called up to the Blue Jays on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Alford was playing at Double-A New Hampshire, but the continuing pile of injuries to the Jays forced the team's hand in calling up their top OF prospect. His call-up is likely short-lived, but it will allow fantasy owners to get a look at the speedy young outfielder.
