Deadline Looming on Jays Unsigned Draft Picks

The 2010 MLB Draft Signing Deadline is at midnight. Here are the top 5 unsigned Jays draft picks heading into Monday Night.

Notable Draft Picks That Are Still Unsigned:

Deck McQuire

The word on the street is McQuire expects over slot money to sign. But as a three year college pitcher I have a hard time seeing Deck pass up even standard slot. Experts expect Deck to sign by the deadline

Griffin Murphy


6’3, 200 lbs, LHP – HS

Scouting Report: 88-91 MPH fastball, can top out at 93. Fastball command & movement rated at 50, with room for improvement. 50+ scouting score Curve, average change. Projectable frame, solid make-up.

Griffin could bypass the majors and enter college. He would be eligible to re-enter the 2012 draft, due to his higher age (19 vs typical 18 for high school pitchers). Assumption is slot or slightly above.

Samuel Dyson


Via Baseball America

In 2007, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Dyson was a medical redshirt as he rehabilitated after having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. … he’s showing a 93-96 mph fastball, even touching 97 and 98 on occasion, and mixing in a sharp, hard, 78-82 mph curveball and a work-in-progress changeup.

Dickie Joe Thon

Thon is a pedigree pick, as his father spent 15 seasons in the big leagues. Dickie Joe, a shortstop, has great quickness, a strong throwing arm and good power potential but is seen as a high ceiling, long-term project pick.

Earlier talk over at Baseball America about the Jays paying a staggering $1.5 million bonus (which is way above slot) to keep Thon from fulfilling his commitment to Rice University.

Logan Ehlers


Logan Ehlers had a great senior high school season, striking out 186 vs only 15 walks in 78 innings. He’s 6’2, 200 lbs. His fastball sits at 87 – 91 and has a 50+ scouting score curve. His command is top notch and he pitches like a veteran.
