Blue Jays Draft Tracker

  The Blue Jays selected 40 players in the MLB draft last week.  As of this writing (6/23/2017), the following players have signed.  Bonuses, for the most part, have not been confirmed by the club. High School players are indicated in bold.
    Please @ me on Twitter (@Clutchlings77) if you come across any announcements.

  The Blue Jays had $8.23 million to spend on picks for the first ten rounds.  The Danner signing leaves them with about $5.35 million to spend on top picks Warmoth and Pearson.  There's a bit of room (5%) to go beyond that before the club faces any penalties.

   Another update:
      Warmoth and Pearson have signed.  The former has started his pro career in the GCL, the latter is still waiting to make his debut.
    Family matters and the limitations of the 24 hour day have prevented me from delivering a more in-depth analysis of this draft, but it's coming.  Scouting reports, observations from a Blue Jays exec, and more are on their way.  An upcoming trip to Vancouver in August should hopefully yield some more reports.
    Thanks to all who have provided updates.
