The 21-year-old second base prospect out of Bowling Green State University batted .291 with one home run and 21 runs batted in 60 games for the short-season Canadians. Berti also stole 23 bases and maintained a .387 on base percentage.
His statistics led him to being named a Northwest League All-Star and the Canadians' Offensive Player of the Year. Berti said that while he always has the intention of helping his team win, he didn't expect for his first season to go as successfully as it did.
"You always have an idea that you want to come in and work hard and do what you can to help whatever team you're playing for to win each day. When you do that, and get a few breaks here or there, the numbers will show up. That's how I've always been taught, and thankfully that's how it worked out for me in my first year."
Berti listed some of his strengths as baserunning and versatility. But along with that, he acknowledged that there is always room for improvement, in all areas of his game.
"There's definitely always things to improve on. Defensively, I worked a lot with Mike Mordecai, our infield coordinator down in the Instructional League, [on] just kind of staying looser and more relaxed when I'm out there in the field," he explained.
"Different things like that, and even working on a few things with my swing. You always kind of need to make minor adjustments here or there—nothing major or dramatic, but just little things that will continue to help you improve and move up to the next level."
The right-hander then spoke more about his experience in Dunedin for instructs, which took place in October.
"I was able to be there for four weeks and I learned a lot about hitting, fielding, baserunning, the mental side, just everything. It's awesome to be around the group of coaches that Toronto has in the minor league system. It was a great experience, and it definitely helped me in my offseason workouts and stuff like that to get prepared for this next season."
"My goal is to go to spring training and work hard and compete every day," he said. "Whatever happens after that happens because there's a lot of talented players in the Blue Jays organization and for me to guess or think where I'm gonna be is just kind of unrealistic right now; I could do everything right and end up somewhere I wasn't expecting. My goal is just to work hard every day and improve and compete out there."
