DateQuestionAnswer
2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank the following OF prospects based upon impact this season: Lewis Brinson, Roman Quinn, Dalton Pompey, Austin Meadows, and Nick Williams. Thanks and Cheers...
(LoyalRoyal from KS)
Man, that is tough, since there is a strong case that none of them will see significant major league time.

I guess Meadows 1, contingent on how quickly--or if--they move Cutch. Then Quinn, Brinson, Williams, Pompey. Could see Brinson and Williams needing an adjustment period in the majors, and I don't know if the Jays have a use for Pompey. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Dalton Pompey just recently came off of the minor league DL. If he hits the ground running, do you see a quick promotion for him to help fill in while Joey Bats is out?
(Jay from Azul, NM)
With the caveat that I don't follow Toronto's system super closely and that Pompey is a bit off my radar now that he's no longer prospect eligible, this looks like a situation where Carrera's performance will dictate Pompey's role. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)What's up with Dalton Pompey? Was surprised with all the injuries the Jays OF has had, he hasn't been made an appearance. Know he was dinged earlier in year, but why did he get passed over when Joey Bats went down? Thanks
(Cole Thornton from El Dorado)
Not really sure. My guess is that it has something to do with the fact that Pompey hasn't been off the DL too long himself. The Blue Jays might also think that maybe they rushed him last year, making them want to let his development dictate his promotion schedule rather than injuries at the big league level. Lastly, Pompey's bat doesn't profile too well in a corner OF spot, but compared to Ezequiel Carrera, that argument doesn't hold a lot of water. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should we be excited about Dalton Pompey? Toronto doesn't exactly have the best track record of developing hitters internally. Last noteworthy bat they developed was maybe Adam Lind.
(J.P. from Toronto)
It's less about development and more about preparation and maintenance now, isn't it? (Harry Pavlidis)
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Dalton Pompey will grab the starting LF spot in Toronto from Michael Saunders and if he does are we looking at a .275/.330/.400 hitter with 30+ steals or do you project more?
(holmesp2001 from St. Louis)
I think he will eventually, but it might not be on Opening Day. For his rookie year, that actually seems ambitious to me, although given the home park that's certainly possible. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Was it a mistake to drop Dalton Pompey in my fantasy league? He was off to a slow start and put together a few good games. You see him having a very good year in a potent Jays lineup?
(agetting from Queens)
If it's a dynasty league then yes. If it is a deep 1-year league then probably but if it's a shallow league then probably not. I do think he will have a pretty good year in that lineup though. (CJ Wittmann)

2015-02-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)Blue Jays pushed both Dalton Pompey and Kendall Graveman all the way through from the low minors to the big leagues in a single season. Is it an organisational philosphy to be aggressive with prospects, or just the skill sets of those two made it impossible to keep them down?
(Simon from kalimantan)
Blue Jays are known for being conservative, typically. Look at how they handle their young pitchers--it's usually a level at a time, low pitch counts, and a level a year. However, these two particular players showed rapid improvement, which kind of forced their hand. After talking to some people in their FO, they were even surprised by Pompey. He took a leap forward last year. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-02-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)What are reasonable expectations for Dalton Pompey for the next 2 years. Is .350 obp reasonable?
(John from Chicago )
The hardest thing to project are minor league stat lines to the majors. Projection systems struggle with it, talent evaluators have problems with it, teams hate it, too. If he walks 10% of the time, then sure, I don't think that's unreasonable. I'd err a bit lower though, .350 in today's game is really tough. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Toronto has a little bit of money left but has a couple of potential needs (Closer, 2B, CF, SP). If you were the team's GM which would you prioritize knowing that the likely fallback options for those positions were Dalton Pompey (CF), Brett Cecil (CL), and Devon Travis (2b). Axford or K-Rod for closer and Hector Olivera at second base would look nice no?
(Jim from Ottawa)
I'm not a believer in Devon Travis as a significant MLB contributor, so I would focus my attention on finding alternatives or ideally an answer at second base. If not that, then I think it makes more sense to focus on finding additional arms for the rotation at this point. (Mark Anderson)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)I have a bit of a man crush on Dalton Pompey. He's currently penciled in as the Jays starting CF. Is he the real deal? He jumped though the minor leagues fairly quickly. He obviously still has some developing to do, but do you feel he'll be productive in his first MLB season?
(Doctor K from Niagara Falls)
I like Pompey from a long term perspective, but his production in 2015 is going to amount to his defensive value and whatever he can scrape out on the offensive side as he adjusts to the MLB level. I like him to hit for average, post decent power numbers and add some speed to the mix once he settles in, but there will be bumps in the road this year. (Mark Anderson)
2014-12-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)A little suprised that Dalton Pompey was only 3rd on the Blue Jays list. But Sanchez has the stuff if he can put it all together and I guess Norris as a lefty rising through 4 levels in one season like Pompey is nothing to sneeze at. All that being said, what sort of floor and ceiling are we looking at the Toronto's centerfielder of the almost present?
(Paul from DC)
We debated a lot on the ordering of Pompey, Sanchez, and Norris. We agreed they were the Top 3 prospects within the system, but it came down to evaluator preference in for everyone's suggested ordering. In the end, based on what I've seen, the feedback from the team, and talking with sources, the officially released rankings felt right.

As for your question specifically in regards to Pompey, I see a floor as a fourth outfielder over the long-term career as reasonable and a ceiling as a first-division caliber player. He's going to provide value to a roster given the defense and base running ability even if the bat plays down a bit from the projections. (Top 10s Chat With Chris Mellen)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Does Dalton Pompey secure and keep the CF job in Toronto this year? I guess a "yes" means he swipes 30 bags and hits for decent average, right? Separately, does Anthony Gose find any success in Detroit?
(Crawdads from Reno, NV)
He ought to. With Gose and Rasmus gone, there's not much to block him. That's not to say he wouldn't have been the best option anyway, but that would have given them justification for sending him back to the minors. He flew through their system this year, but he earned it every step of the way. He looked great in the AFL too. I think he's going to be quite good, and the Blue Jays are clearly in win-now mode and he's going to be their best option. 30 steals is probably a bit aggressive, but 20 is doable. (Jeff Moore)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)Does the Michael Saunders signing in Toronto stymie Dalton Pompey's chances of being the primary CF or do you see Saunders sliding into the LF opening? What kind of numbers do you expect from Pompey this year? Cheers!
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
As I understand the current situation, Pompey is going to be given every opportunity to win the job outright in spring training, regardless of Saunders. In reality, Pompey probably needs a little more polishing after rocketing through the minor leagues last year, but he could handle his own in the big leagues right now. If he were thrust into the lineup on Opening Day and left there all season, I would expect steady improvement and solid overall production driven by an improving batting average and steals over the course of the season, with power coming to bear in 2016.

2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)John Gibbons said yesterday that, if the Blue Jays roster remained unchanged between now and the start of the season, he'd love to see Dalton Pompey out there in CF. Let's assume that only one OF is signed to replace Colby Rasmus and Melky Cabrera (assuming he doesn't return): is there any realistic chance of Pompey making the Opening Day roster and playing CF/LF ahead of both Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar?
(Nick from London, UK)
There's absolutely a chance of that. Pompey impressed a ton this year and the offensive/defensive potential projects to play in a big way at the MLB level. He's got the all-around skills to be a far better player than Gose or Pillar, and if he shows even reasonably well in spring training, he could walk away with the Opening Day job and never look back. Pompey's real....very real and he's going to be a factor in Toronto sooner than people realize. (Mark Anderson)
2014-09-10 12:00:00 (link to chat)Does Dalton Pompey project to be a division one regular? How much power do you think we could see from him especially hitting at Rogers Centre?
(Mike from Oshawa)
I am not as high on Pompey like others. I view him more of a second division type, maybe even a 4th OF.
He's playing at Rogers Centre, so tick the HR total up a notch right away. I think he can show fringe-average power. (Tucker Blair)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's the right order in terms of offensive upside: Rusney Castillo, Yorman Rodriguez, Dalton Pompey, Steven Moya?
(barton from Vinklesville)
Castillo, Moya, Rodriguez, Pompey. But, Pompey's floor is higher than the two preceding him. I'm not sold Moya ever hits, although his pure upside is obviously immense. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the upside for Nomar Mazara? Higher than Lewis Brinson or Dalton Pompey?
(Matt from Bluegrass State)
I am not high on Pompey. I think he's a second division type. Just not that impressed with the hit tool.

Brinson has a high ceiling and low floor, so I think Mazara fits somewhere in between them for upside. I am pissed that Mazara skipped High-A, as I won't be able to see him with Myrtle Beach now. (Tucker Blair)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ranking highest upside, bat only... Aaron Judge, Rio Ruiz, Lewis Brinson, Renato Nunez, Dalton Pompey, and Franklin Barreto?
(MP from Kentucky)
Pure upside: Brinson, Judge, Pompey, Ruiz, Barreto, Nunez (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan, gun to your head (pretend, of course), which of these bats has the best chance to win an MVP in 5-7 years: Raimel Tapia, Dalton Pompey, Austin Meadows, Aaron Judge, or Rio Ruiz.
(Matt from KY)
None of them have an MVP ceiling. But, Tapia could mash his way to one, I guess. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Was Dalton Pompey in the conversation at all? What held him back?
(Bret from Toronto)
He wasn't. Top 101 but not a top 50. Not sold he's actually going to hit against better arms. Double-A test will be huge. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the better long term ceiling: Dalton Pompey or Michael Taylor? Lower floor?
(Steve from PHI)
Taylor's floor is lower and I suppose if everything clicks, his ceiling is higher as well. The odds of that ceiling coming together for Taylor are slim though. I'll take Pompey. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Dalton Pompey has struggled since his promotion. Does the small sample size change your outlook on him in Dynasty leagues?
(Steve from Vancouver )
Not quite yet, but I'm taking notice. He's been really, really bad. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)2 parter - don't run away. Do Dalton Pompey or Gabby Guerrero come close to making to mid top 50? Which one will ultimately have more impact at MLB level?
(michaeltorin from San Diago)
Neither was in the discussion for the 50, but that's not a knock on either one of them. The 50 is for the elite of the elite. I haven't seen Guerrero in person, so I won't guess on trying to comparing them, but Pompey is going to be a regular major leaguer. I think in the last chat I said he could put up some Shane Victorino-like stat lines in the big leagues, and I think that's still a decent comp, at least from a numbers standpoint. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Are Dalton Pompey and Manual Margot top 101 prospects yet? And you has the higher upside?
(Scott from az)
I don't know if they're Top 100 for me yet, but both are certainly on my radar and are probably Top 150, yeah. I'll say Pompey is the better bet right now because he's already in High-A and he has impact speed. I think Margot will have a more well-rounded skill set, but he's a level behind and is a better real prospect than a fantasy one. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Is Dalton Pompey turning into a legit prospect? Seems to be putting some really good numbers.
(scott from az)
He's been a legit prospect. I think if the prospect team had to do it all over again, he'd be on the top 10 list for the Jays. He's got plenty of tools, and they're starting to come together at High-A. The broken hamate didn't help, but he's a legit CF prospect with plus athleticism and speed. Interested to see how he holds up as a RHH, but the good news is that the right side is the side he'll have to bat less frequently. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Better fantasy future between these CFs: Tyrone Taylor or Dalton Pompey?
(Kory from Lansing)
I prefer Taylor. (Bret Sayre)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Dalton Pompey have a realistic chance of being an MLB regular? #Jays
(BirdsofBABIP from Canada)
Very strong reports on him. He has tools. If he puts it together, he could very easily be a ML regular. (Jason Parks)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any high ceiling prospects in this group: Jairo Labourt, Adonys Cardona, Dawel Lugo, Yeyfry Del Rosario, Mitch Nay, Dalton Pompey, Santiago Nessy, Dickie Thon, Jesus Tinoco, Rowdy Tellez.
(Jack from Toronto)
Guys that I've seen or heard enough to talk about:
Labourt: intriguing arm that needs to be looked at more closely
Cardona: may never command his stuff enough to be relevant
Nay: Impressive Raw power, still developing other aspects of his game
Dalton Pompey: smart ball player, most likely a solid organizational player.
Nessy: Raw power with some arm strength behind the plate. Excellent leadership ability, looked very good in spring training.
Dickie Thon: Always plays well when I'm in attendance. (Zach Mortimer)
