In today’s look “Around the Farm” we take a look at AJ Wideman of the Dunedin Blue Jays.

Wideman Wideman was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Washington Nationals in exchange for outfielder Tyrel Godwin at the end of Spring Training in 2005. 

The 22 year-old lefty began the 2007 season with the Lansing Lugnuts where he went 3-0 with a 3.74 ERA in 4 starts before being promoted to Dunedin.  In 16 starts for Omar Malave’s Dunedin Blue Jays Wideman is 9-3 with a 3.63 ERA.

The Mississauga, Ontario native was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 11th round of the 2003 draft.  He began his pro career with the Gulf Coast League Expos where he went 2-4 with a 2.01 ERA in 10 appearances including 8 starts.

AJ grew up a Blue Jays fan in the era when the Jays won back-to-back World Series Championships and would no doubt someday love to put on a Toronto uniform.
