1s 38 Toronto Blue Jays Noah Syndergaard RHP Texas $600,000
Syndergaard had as much helium as any Texas high schooler leading up to the draft. He led Legacy High into the 4-A regional semifinals by two-hitting Trimble Tech (Fort Worth) in the first round, striking out 10 and hitting a grand slam against Lake Dallas in the second round, and striking out 15 against Birdville in the quarterfinals. He was even better in the semis, coming within one out of a no-hitter and striking out 14 against Frenship (Wolfforth). Syndergaard has an athletic 6-foot-4, 195-pound frame, and was dealing 90-94 mph fastballs in the postseason. His curveball also was much improved, and there's talk that the Dallas Baptist recruit suddenly could sneak into the sandwich round with the right club.
