Jays' top prospects Danny Jansen, Sean Reid-Foley expected to make debuts

Two of the Toronto Blue Jays' top prospects, catcher Danny Jansen and pitcher Sean Reid-Foley, are expected to make their major league debuts Monday against the Kansas City Royals.

Jansen was promoted to the Blue Jays' roster Sunday when infielder Yangervis Solarte (oblique) was placed on the 10-day disabled list but did not play in Toronto's 2-1 victory over Tampa Bay.

Jansen, who was ranked as Toronto's No. 6 prospect earlier this year by ESPN's Keith Law, is expected to catch his former Triple-A batterymate Reid-Foley on Monday in Kansas City. The Blue Jays are expected to promote Reid-Foley to replace Mike Hauschild in their rotation.

Jansen, 23, was batting .275 with 12 home runs and 58 RBIs this season at Triple-A Buffalo. He was removed from Buffalo's game Saturday when word of his promotion reached the dugout. Manager Bobby Meacham broke the news by telling Jansen, "Kid, you're going to the big leagues. I don't want to see you again.''

"It's like something I've never felt before, it was an amazing feeling," Jansen told MLB.com. "It really sunk in when I called my parents and got to talk to them -- some tears came out, everyone's happy, everyone's excited about it, and my brother actually lives in Kansas City, so it's a pretty awesome moment."

Reid-Foley, 22, went 12-4 in 23 combined starts between Buffalo and Double-A New Hampshire this season. The right-hander has been ranked by Law as the Blue Jays' No. 9 overall prospect.
