Blue Jays select 3B Jordan Groshans 12th overall

  Blue Jays select 3B Jordan Groshans 12th overall With their first round pick, 12th overall, the Blue Jays selected Jordan Groshans, a shortstop/third baseman from Magnolia High School in Texas. He was committed to the Universityof Kansas, but given where he was selected it’s essentially a slam dunk he’ll sign. Groshans is an athletic 6’4” infielder who has played SS but is expected to settle in at third base as a professional. He has considerable offensive upside, with above average potential power and success hitting against quality pitching on the high school showcase circuit.
