Rajai's success rate in stealing bases wouldn't be as high if he didn't pick his spots as much.

I think you can expect the Jays to run alot this season tho. They should have 3 guys on the team next season with the speed to steal 40-50 bases(+Gose in AAA) and maybe 6 with the speed to steal 20 or more. Clearly they wont all get the opportunity to do so but it seems AA is trying to build the team with alot of speed on the bases.
