Toronto Draft Review

Toronto had a very strong showing this year in the draft. With alot of picks they picked alot of talent and look good if they can sign some. The amazing part is that the might have done the second best at drafting in there division as Tampa Bay had a very strong draft also. Here are some looks at the Jays picks.

21 Beede, Tyler Lawrence Academy (MA) RHP R/R 6'04" 1993-05-23 HS



21 Beede, Tyler Lawrence Academy (MA) RHP R/R 6'04" 1993-05-23 HS

21st overall      Tyler, Beede         RHP   6'4   (1993-05-23)

Beede is a sure thing if you ask me. This guy dosent throw at amazing speeds but he really gets pitching and knows how to throw. His fastball is usally around 91 to 93 Mph. His mechanics are great and getting better. He has a nasty breaking ball that is in the middle of a curve and a slider (slurve). He does have a commitment to Vanderbelt.

 

35th overall   Jacob, Anderson    OF     6'4  190     (1992- 11-22)

This is a big power bat, coming out of high school with some nice numbers. This guy won the All American Hs home run derby and can also play some first base.

 

46th overall    Joey, Musgrove   RHP   6'5  230    (1992-12-04)

Dont know to much about this guy. He is a big high school arm. Huge frame high risk high reward kind of pick. The jays really enjoy taking pitchers like this.

 

53rd overall    Dwight, Smith  OF    5'11 180    (1992-10-26)

The son of the former Cubs outfielder of the same name, Smith clearly benefited from having a big league dad watching him hit. He has a professional approach at the plate and should hit for plenty of average at the next level. How high a team might consider the Georgia high school product might depend on how much power he'll have in the future. He'll have some, but it's not clear just how much. This is a top notch talent and it never hurts to go with baseball bloodlines.

 

57th overall  Kevin, Cormier   RHP  6'3  205    (1992-08-01)

Again with another big body. The jays really went after alot of high school guys this year too. Big fram on this guy throws hard.

 

74th Overall  Daniel Norris   LHP    6'2  208   (1993-04-25)

With all the hard-throwing right-handers in this Draft class, it's easy to forget about the high school lefties. Norris might be the best of the lot. The Tennessee prepster has plenty of arm strength in his own right, and it's from the left side, always an exciting combination. His fastball is a plus for a southpaw -- he'll sit around 92 mph but has a little extra he can reach back for. He commands his fastball very well. His curve can be inconsistent, but it should be a plus pitch with hard bite to it.
