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.

It's obviously good news, but Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that it's "probably a ways away still" before the shortstop will be ready to return.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - It's likely to be more than a year between Troy Tulowitzki's appearances in a major league game, but the injured shortstop for the Toronto Blue Jays says he's getting there.

"I can honestly say for the first time in a while I feel like I'm headed in the right direction," Tulowitzki said Tuesday before the Blue Jays' game at Tampa Bay.

The 33-year-old Tulowitzki, a five-time All-Star, had surgery April 2 to remove bone spurs from both heels. He's just getting back to the point of taking ground balls, hitting and starting to run in the outfield. He last appeared in a game on July 28, 2017, but did not elect to have the surgery until this year.

It’s been the injury bug that’s zapped their collective values, which we saw in great detail last season when they combined to play in just 116 games, and you could argue that Tulowitzki wasn’t healthy enough to play in several of those either.

"This spring training it just got to be a little bit too much," he said, "and at this point in my career I wanted to give myself a fair chance to come back and be the player I know I can be, and also end my career when I want to end it, not because it's being forced."

His recovery process is "all on feel, there's really no schedule," Tulowitzki said. But at this point there is no pain, and he said he will fight the temptation to hurry back onto the field.

"I don't want to sit here and say for sure I will be back, but I like my chances," he said. "I'm in a good spot. I feel like this needed to be done. I feel like I'm getting better."

Notes: The Blue Jays signed 2018 first-round pick Jordan Groshans, a shortstop from Magnolia High School in Texas. Groshans was taken 12th overall.

Josh Donaldson rejoins Blue Jays .
Sportsnet, and virtually everyone is, is reporting that Josh Donaldson ‘has flown back to Toronto from Dunedin to rejoin the Jays’. I thought the plan was to have him play a rehab game or two, but I guess that plan has been scrapped. Gibby said that Josh would have to ‘run at full speed’ before they would let him play again. I guess he must have been able to do it. No word on who will be leaving the roster to make room for Josh, but I’d guess it would be Gio Urshela. Course maybe they could drops someone from the bullpen. I wouldn’t believe the report, if it wasn’t for Sportsnet reporting it.
