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.

The Toronto Blue Jays selected 18-year-old high school infielder Jordan Groshans with the 12 th overall pick in the 2018 MLB draft. It was the first time the Blue Jays used their first-round pick to select a high school player since 2013.

The Toronto Blue Jays are making money moves this morning.

The team selected infielder Jordan ​Groshans with the 12th overall pick in the MLB Draft last Monday. Just over a week later, the Blue Jays signed the 18-year-old. The slot for the 12th overall pick is $4,200,900 with an unknown bonus.

Groshans played shortstop for his high school this past year and was committed to the University of Kansas for the fall, where his brother attends. According to MLB.com, Groshans was the 31st-ranked player in the draft and was selected ahead of some top prospects like ​Brady Singer, who was still available at this point during the draft.

The Blue Jays also signed right handed pitcher Adam Kloffenstein, the No. 88 pick in the MLB Draft. Kloffenstein and Groshans both attended Magnolia High School in Houston, Texas. Kloffenstein's slot is just over $650,000, but the ​Jays offered him a first-round level signing bonus of about $2.5 million, swaying him away from TCU.

The Blue Jays took the leap and chose Groshans because of his "combination of power, of contact, of plate discipline" and offensive abilities. They also feel he has the necessary tools to be successful on the field, no matter where they're forced to slot him.
