The Blue Jays have yet to sign their supplemental first-rounder, second-rounder and two third-rounders, but they have made a significant signing. Toronto agreed to terms with 18th-round pick Daniel Webb on a $450,000 bonus. That ties for the second-highest bonus known after the 10th round so far this year, and is three times MLB’s recommended $150,000 maximum after the fifth round.
Webb had the potential to go in the sandwich round as a Kentucky high school senior in 2008, but dropped to the Diamondbacks in the 12th round because of signability. The righthander turned down Arizona and attended Northwest Florida State JC this spring, where his fastball touched 94 mph. He did battle inconsistency with his secondary pitches and command.
