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:
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

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.

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 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.
