Ontario Blue Jays Scout Day: Quick Hits (Position Players)

Josh Arce
PBR Canada Scout

On Friday, April 8th, PBR Ontario joined forces with the Ontario Blue Jays for a Scout Day for the second year in a row. We got a look at over 100 players in the organization from the 2023 - 2027 classes with the pitchers throwing bullpens at the Athlete Matrix and the positional players getting outdoors at Kings Christian Collegiate.

It was a loaded roster that included some of the programs top underclass and five committed players, along with highly intriguing uncommitted talent from all classes. Their was a ton of high-level performers as shown by the metrics collected at the event and we continue to break it all down below.

At this event, we retrieved a significant amount of data on each player including: 60-yard times, batting practice measured by TrackMan, catcher pop-times and velocity, outfield evaluation and velocity, infield evaluation and velocity and pitcher bullpens analyzed and assessed by TrackMan. We pride ourselves on utilizing the latest technology in the game to provide the most accurate data for both the player and those recruiting/evaluating the player.

Below, we continue to break down everything we saw from the event with our second set of Quick Hits with provides scouting notes and video on five standout position players.

Ryan Stalony OF / OF / Loyola Catholic School, ON / 2025

‘25 OF Stalony is another former Future Gamer who’s game continues to trend upwards. One of the best 2025 hitters in the country, he always seems to have a couple base knocks in the box score. There’s bat speed and pop from the right-side barrelling multiple balls up to his pull-side, with one leaving the yard in a hurry. He posted the 2nd best 60-time of the day running a 6.70 while also having the top OF velo at 90 mph. Stalony is set to have a big summer starting the season off as the 3rd ranked player in his class.

Philip Cheong SS / 2B / Bill Crothers , ON / 2026

Cheong’s game has really developed nicely since the fall. An XL athletic 5-foot-10, 160-pound frame continues to get stronger and the movements are much more twitchy as he started his day off with a 6.45 60-yard time. On the infield, he looked more comfortable and accurate with the arm than last summer as he finished with the top INF velo at 87 mph. In the box, he showed whip in the barrel with bat speed. The ball jumps off his bat when he catches it out front with pop to the pull-side. Really good overall showing from the 2X Junior Future Gamer and one of the top 2026’s in the country.

Austin Boylan 3B / OF / Bill Crothers , ON / 2025

Boylan continued to show why he is one of the top ‘25 bats in the country at OBJ Scout Day. a physical 5-foot-8, 185lbs frame with strength and power potential from the right side, Boylan has a quiet-to-explosive load as he crushed baseballs gap-to-gap. He’s cleaned it up on the infield as well, moving more athletically with more arm strength across the diamond with a 85 mph velo, as well. Boylan was a standout bat at multiple national events last year and he will look to continue more of the same here as we get closer to the 2023 season.

John Hughes OF / Applewood Heights, ON / 2025

Hughes was one of the main attractions last summer at the Junior Future Games patrolling CF and hitting in the middle of the JFG1 lineup that went all the way to the semi-finals. There’s lots to like about the strong/athletic frame with good tracking and a quick first step who was up to 87 mph. In the box, he looked to elevate pull-side hitting multiple deep fly balls, with one clearing the fence without a doubt. There’s no doubt Hughes is one of the better 2025 outfielders in the country and he will be a close follow this summer.

Raine Kreklewetz OF / 3B / St. Michael's College School , BC / 2026

One of the more physical younger players on the day was ‘26 OF Raine Kreklewetz standing 6-foot, 175-pounds. Strength in the box from the left-side played throughout his round when catching the ball out front, he has the ability to elevate to the pull-side. From the OF, he posted a 83 mph OF velo which was 5th best during the scout day. We last saw Krekewetz at the Fall Open ID, and there has been improvements this off-season. A good follow in the 2026 class in Ontario.
