Schimpf Named Toronto Org All-Star

ryan schimpf Blue Jays 2014We have finally reached the end of the organization all-stars, as named by milb.com.

The last Valley Leaguer named is Ryan Schimpf, a Luray Wrangler in 2008. Ryan was named the Blue Jays’ “utilityman” all-star by Sam Dykstra.

This is what Sam wrote about Ryan:

Like so many others who have found themselves in this spot during our Organizational All-Stars series, Schimpf, who played at second, third, right and left in 2014, would likely have a spot, if only you could pin him at one position. His 24 home runs marked a career high and led the organization in the category, besting Johnson by six for the top spot. The 5-foot-9 left-handed slugger’s other New Hampshire numbers (.270/.370/.616) were even better than the ones that got him an Organization All-Star nod in 2013 (.210/.338/.428). He had plenty of struggles in Buffalo (.189 average, .648 OPS), but if he can close those holes in his swing, his power and defensive versatility should provide plenty of value at the Triple-A level in 2015.

Well done, Ryan! Maybe 2015 will be the year he makes the Show…
