Tellez received a spring training invite from the Major Leagues in 2016. To begin the minor league season of 2016, he was sent to the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats.
Tellez was one of 13 Eastern League All-Stars for the full season as well as an All-Star for the Eastern League’s midseason.
Tellez had a fantastic season in 2016, setting career highs in nearly all offensive categories.
He played in 124 games and had a .297 batting average, ranking him tenth in the Eastern League.
He also had a .389 on-base percentage, a .530 slugging percentage, 23 home runs, 63 walks, 81 RBIs, 71 runs, and 29 doubles (tied for 8th).
He received honors as a Baseball America Double-A All-Star and a MiLB.com Toronto Blue Jays Organization All-Star.
Prior to the 2017 season, MLB Pipeline ranked Tellez as Toronto’s fifth-best prospect and the league’s sixth-best first base prospect, respectively.
He was the prospect in the Jays’ minor league system who was most prepared for the Major Leagues, according to manager John Gibbons during spring training.
Late in March, Tellez was given a transfer to the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons. Tellez blasted two home runs in the Bisons’ 4-2 victory over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in his first game for the franchise.
But after that, Tellez had trouble in Triple-A. He had a .222 batting average in 122 games with six home runs and 56 runs batted in. Tellez was incorporated into Toronto’s 40-man roster on November 20, 2017.
