Will the Mississauga, Ontario native Dalton Pompey be the center-fielder this season with the Jays?  Starting the 2014 season in Dunedin and fast tracking through the ranks Pompey finished the year in AAA Buffalo batting .358.  Pompey played 70 games in Dunedin Blue Jays (A), 31 games in New Hampshire (AA) and 12 in Buffalo.  There has to be high hopes for Pompey to make the transition to the MLB level.
