Biographical Information[edit]

Jason Leblebijian is an infielder who began playing in the Toronto Blue Jays organization in 2012, after being selected in the 25th round of the 2012 amateur draft out of Bradley University.

In his first professional season, he played for three different teams in the Jays' system, hitting .263/.336/.357 in 58 games. In 2013, he was again with three teams and hit .246/.330/.337 in 62 games. In 2014,m he finally managed to settle in one place for a full year, namely the Lansing Lugnuts of the Midwest League, after making brief stays with them ion his first two seasons. In 99 games, he hit .248 with 5 homers and 48 RBIs. As much as he moved around between teams in his first three years, he also moved around the diamond, as he saw time at all four infield positions and even pitched for a couple of game. In 2015, he split his time between Lansing and the Dunedin Blue Jays of the Florida State League, hitting .245 with 9 homers and 53 RBIs in 100 games. He starred in the 2015-2016 Australian Baseball League, leading with 19 doubles and tying Kyle Petty for the most RBI (44).

In 2016, he had his best season to date, starting off with Dunedin and then being promoted to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats of the AA Eastern League, combining to hit .294/.361/.436 in 127 games, with 26 doubles and 13 homers, 72 runs and 55 RBIs. In 2017, he spent a first full season in AAA with the Buffalo Bisons and hit .258 in 120 games, with 11 homers and 60 RBIs. He continued to move all around the infield, but played almost every day. It was the same story in 2018, as he got into 84 games with Buffalo and hit .220 with 10 homers and 41 RBIs.

His last name is clearly of Armenian origin.
