Blue Jays: Revisiting first round selections since the 2009 amateur draft
2015- Jon Harris: Drafted 1st round, 29th overall
Jon Harris has the dubious honour of being selected by the Blue Jays twice in the amateur draft. Drafted in the 33rd round in 2012 as a high school senior, he chose to not sign with the team and would play at Missouri State instead. His experience in college netted him a higher overall draft position in 2015 and also a considerably larger payday.
Harris would begin his professional career quite poorly, pitching to a 0-6 record and a 6.95 ERA with the Vancouver Canadians. He would continue working in the Blue Jays farm system, playing predominantly in 2018 with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in AA ball, while also starting two games for the Buffalo Bisons in AAA.
Last year, he would finish the season with a 12-5 record and 4.75 ERA, starting all 25 games that he would pitch in. With his record, he was assigned to begin the year in AAA, but he is currently on the injured list to begin the season.
