Born in Troy, MI, Jonathon David Berti is a highly versatile utility player who has played for both the Miami Marlins and the Toronto Blue Jays. Jon was promoted to the major leagues on September 26, 2018. His father, Tom Berti, played in the minors.

The Toronto Blue Jays picked Jon in the 18th round of the 2011 amateur draft, making him the highest draftee from Bowling Green since Nolan Reimold; the scout was Nick Manno. He debuted as a pro with the Vancouver Canadians, hitting .291/.387/.376 with 23 steals in 28 tries and 37 runs scored in 60 games. He fielded .974 at second base and led the Northwest League in times hit by pitch (12), was third in swipes (behind Jesus Galindo and Jace Peterson) and was 6th in OBP. He was named the loop's All-Star second baseman, joining Paul Hoilman (first base), Joe Panik (shortstop) and Jimmy Comerota (third base) and Travis Whitmore (third base) as the NWL All-Star infield.

Watch speedster Berti steal his way around the bases, and highlights of his 2018 season. In 2021, he had the fastest sprint speed of all major league third basemen, at 29.9 feet/second.
