On what is expected to be a big deadline day of spending for the Blue Jays, their first deal landed them 13th-rounder Matt Dean for $737,500. That's the equivalent of sandwich-round money for a player who was considered a sandwich-round talent.
The Colony (Texas) HS product profiles as a third baseman with plus power and the ability to hit for a solid average. He has a strong arm that will fit well at the hot corner. He had committed to Texas.
The Blue Jays still have seven unsigned picks in the first 10 rounds, beginning with No. 21 overall choice Tyler Beede. If Toronto gets most of those players under contract, it very well could break the record for bonus spending on a single draft: $11,927,200 by the Nationals in 2010.
