2 68 Toronto Blue Jays Jake Eliopoulos LHP Sacred Heart Catholic HS, Newmarket, Ont.
It's a down year in general for Canada. Unlike the past two years, there won't be a first-rounder from the Great White North, but Eliopoulos will likely be the highest-drafted player from Ontario since Scott Thorman was a first-round pick in 2000. Jim Eliopoulos, a catcher on the 1984 Canadian Olympic team, adopted Jake from Ukraine as a baby. At 6-foot-3 and 170 pounds, Eliopoulos is long and lean with room for projection. He's also young in a lot of regards, which scouts like. He looks young in the face, leading them to believe he'll fill out and add velocity and, being from Canada, he doesn't have the mileage on his arm that a similar pitcher in California or Florida might have. Eliopoulos' fastball currently sits in the 88-91 mph range with good life and movement. His mechanics are easy and clean and he also throws a curveball with some late depth and a changeup that is above-average for a high school pitcher. While nothing really jumps out about Eliopoulos, he's a complete package.
15 457 Los Angeles Dodgers Jeff Hunt 3B St. Benedict Catholic SS, Cambridge, Ont. $125,000
Third baseman Jeff Hunt is 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds. He has good strength and an above-average arm, but has been inconsistent. Hunt is hard on himself, and while some players need to go to college to fill out, he'd be better served by going out and playing every day.
19 569 Cincinnati Reds Mitch Clarke LHP Forest Heights Collegiate Institute, Kitchener, Ont.
20 604 Texas Rangers Jerome Werniuk RHP Neil McNeil HS, Toronto
Jerome Werniuk is a hulking 6-foot-6, 220-pound righthander. Because of his size, he has difficulty repeating his delivery and his fastball is just average right now. If it all clicks for him he has a chance to be special.
29 886 Milwaukee Brewers Chandler McLaren OF Guelph (Ont.) Collegiate Vocational Institute
30 903 Oakland Athletics Royce Consigli OF Notre Dame HS, Welland, Ont.
41 1230 Detroit Tigers Larry Balkwill C Ursuline College Chatham SS, Chatham-Kent, Ont.
42 1270 Toronto Blue Jays Michael Reeves C St. Peter's SS, Peterborough, Ont.
43 1300 Toronto Blue Jays Maxx Tissenbaum SS York Mills Collegiate Institute, Toronto
48 1434 San Diego Padres Andrew Ruck OF Sinclair SS, Whitby, Ont.
48 1450 Toronto Blue Jays Jeff Gibbs RHP Birchmount Park Collegiate Institute, Toronto
Righthander Jeff Gibbs has an athletic, 6-foot-4, 180-pound frame, with room to fill out. The Toronto native has good arm speed, but his breaking ball is a little loopy and his secondary stuff needs work. If he doesn't sign, he's headed to Maine next year.
