Round 10 (304) - P Josh Mollerus - Oregon

Josh Mollerus was selected 304th overall from the University of Oregon, after previously playing four seasons with the University of San Francisco. He only managed to pitch 36.2 innings in 2023, where he owned a 3.68 ERA and had 50 strikeouts and a team high 11 saves. He clearly has good stuff as he’s racked up strikeouts, but has only thrown more than 50 innings once in his five year college career and lacks overall experience against solid hitters. He has lots to learn and improve on with things such as command and durability, but his 12.3 K/9 rate makes him an attractive pick this late in the draft. He has started games but was mostly used in relief situations, which could be ultimately where he ends up. If he stays put as a relief pitcher, his strikeout rate alone creates value at the position and within the organization.

Round 11 (334) - P Grant Rogers - McNeese State

Grant Rogers was selected 334th overall out of McNeese State University, where he had an extremely productive 2023 season with a 12-1 record with a 1.82 ERA over 103.2 innings. The right-hander stands 6 '7, 230 pounds and was in dominant form last season showing great potential, winning the Southland Conference Pitcher of the Year, All-Southland Conference First Team and All-Southland Defensive Team. He has stated that he intends to sign with the Blue Jays where he will look to continue his form from his excellent final season in college and further develop into a major league pitcher. Based on his production from a season ago, his potential as an 11th round selection seems incredible, though he was not ranked in’s top 250 draft prospects.

Round 12 (364) - P Chay Yeager - Pasco Hernando CC (FL)

Chay Yeager was selected 364th overall from Pasco Hernando CC, where he batted .258 with seven home runs and 32 RBI in 47 games. He was also the starting pitcher for 15 games where he held a record of 9-3 with an ERA of 3.76 and 102 strikeouts over 69.1 innings. Though he showed the ability to contribute offensively at the Junior College level, his best path to the major leagues is through his arm and his abilities as a pitcher. He stands 5’ 11, 180 pounds, but possesses a powerful fastball and a solid combination of the slider and changeup to mix the speeds. Yeager was not ranked in’s top 250 draft prospects, but offers some value in the 12th round and could rise through the rankings, should he sign with the team.
