Jays Sign Two Sandwich Picks

The Blue Jays have announced the signing of two of their three sandwich picks, high school righthanders Aaron Sanchez (the No. 34 overall pick) and Noah Syndergaard (No. 38).

Sanchez signed for $775,000. Last year's slot recommendation at No. 34 was $918,000.

Syndergaard signed for $600,000. That's less than MLB's 2009 slot recommendation of $858,600 for the No. 38 choice but more than the money he would have received if he has gone in the fourth or fifth round as expected.
