The following year, Alford played 9 games for the Bluefield Blue Jays of the Appalachian League and was then promoted to the Class-A Lansing Lugnuts for 5 games. In total, he batted .259 with 2 home runs, 5 RBI, and 5 stolen bases.[5] He was relegated to a backup safety role for the Rebels in 2014, and made just 6 tackles in 4 games.[2] On September 30, 2014, it was announced that Alford was leaving the University to join the Blue Jays organization full-time, and planned on attending their fall instructional league before playing in the Australian Summer League.[4]
