The Blue Jays announced Wednesday that they had signed second-round pick Jeremy Gabryszwski. He received a $575,000 bonus, which exceeded MLB's $463,500 recommendation for the 78th overall pick. It's the highest bonus so far outside of the first and supplemental first rounds.
A righthander from Crosby (Texas) HS, Gabryszwski flashed a 92-94 mph fastball and an plus slider early in the spring but didn't maintain that stuff throughout his senior season. He had committed to Lamar.
Toronto had seven of the first 78 picks in the draft and spent them all on high schoolers. First-rounder Tyler Beede, sandwich picks Jacob Anderson, Dwight Smith Jr. and Kevin Comer and second-rounder Daniel Norris remain unsigned. The Jays also have yet to sign their eight choices in the first 10 rounds after Gabryszwski.
