Jays roll the dice with 2011 first-round picks

The Jays selected 5 players in the first round of the MLB draft last night. Click on the links for in depth scouting reports, analysis, and videos.


#21 – TYLER BEEDE – RHP Auburn, Mass. Lawrence Academy High School

Here’s a video of a no-hitter that Beede threw last month and another well-detailed article about Tyler Beede.

#46 – JOE MUSGROVE – RHP El Cajon, CA HS

There’s not a lot of information on Musgrove as he was a bit off the radar ranked at #157.

The Jays took a big chance in drafting guys who had committed to big schools and will have to fork over quite a bit of money in order to sign them, but AA and the Jays are confident they can sign all of them. However, a few of them are going to be tough to convince most notably the Jays top pick Tyler Beede who is committed to Vanderbilt. The Jays are confident they can sign Beede and considering his reaction last night maybe they’ll get something done.

If that’s the case, then yesterday’s coup was formidable with the focus once again on stockpiling young, controllable arms.
