The Blue Jays' top prospect turned in another scorcher last week for Triple-A Las Vegas. The catcher went 16-for-32 (.500) while slugging 1.125 and posting a .542 on-base percentage. He topped all Prospect Watch players in OPS (1.668), total bases (36), homers (tied with others at five) and RBIs (13), making him the clear choice for the second week in a row to be named Prospect Watch Hitter of the Week.
The tear has brought d'Arnaud's season line up to .328/.385/.603 with 12 homers. He's now in the top 10 in slugging, OPS and home runs.
Big league catcher J.P. Arencibia is coming off a solid month during which he homered eight times, including a two-homer game on Sunday. Finding a way to get both backstops into Toronto's lineup might have to be considered soon if d'Arnaud keeps this up.
