The Toronto Blue Jays had 22 draft picks for the 2022 MLB Draft, acquiring two picks following the second round as compensation for losing Robbie Ray and Marcus Semien this past offseason. This gave the Jays a prime opportunity to add to their farm system with some high valued prospect talent, using their first pick (22nd overall) on high school pitcher Brandon Barreira.
MLB clubs around the league are now starting to sign players from the past weekend and the Blue Jays are no different, getting some signatures on contracts roughly a week after the draft.
The first player to sign with the Jays as per Jim Callis at MLB.com was fifth-rounder Mason Fluharty, a LHP out of Liberty University. A relief pitcher, Fluharty authored a 3.47 ERA through 51 appearances over three years at Liberty and signed with the Jays for $222,500 (slot = $347,000).
The Toronto Blue Jays have signed over ten players from the 2022 MLB Draft roughly a week after the three rounds concluded during the All-Star weekend.
The next player was second baseman, Cade Doughty, out of LSU, the second supplemental pick following the second round. He amassed a .921 OPS through 519 at-bats with the Tigers along with 30 home runs, 124 RBI, and a .301 batting average while manning second base in his third year. He signed for slot value of $833,600.
At the time of writing, the Blue Jays have also signed the following players:
3rd round: OF Alan Roden (Creighton)
4th round: RHP Ryan Jennings (Lousiana Tech)
6th round: RHP T.J. Brock (Ohio State)
8th round: OF Dylan Rock (Texas A&M)
10th round: LHP Ian Churchill (University of San Diego)
13th round: RHP Bo Bonds (University of Lousiana at Lafayette)
14th round: C Sammy Hernandez (Lakeland Senior High School)
17th round: LHP Ryan Chasse (Campbell University)
Lastly, the Blue Jays have signed 77th overall pick infielder Tucker Toman, inking him to a $2.0 million signing bonus, well over the $846,900 slot value. A high schooler out of Hammond, South Carolina with a commitment to LSU, Toman was ranked #35 on the MLB Pipeline draft board and was very excited to be drafted by the Blue Jays. A switch hitter, Toman has some solid pop in the bat with quick bat speed that can hit across the diamond and impressed at the MLB Draft Combine.
Right now, the Blue Jays still have yet to sign first rounder Brandon Barreira and second rounder Josh Kasevich with a few of the later picks still yet to be officially signed, although still early in the process.
