The 2010 Amateur Draft: The Prospects that Got Away

After years of focusing on college players, the Toronto Blue Jays draft efforts began focusing on higher-ceiling prep players in the last four years and put an emphasis on high school players in 2010.

Latin Signings > First Round Pick

The recently-announced signings out of Latin America should help Toronto Blue Jays fans forget about missing out on first round draft pick Tyler Beede. The organization signed four players that could probably go in the first two rounds of the amateur draft if they were eligible.

Scouting Report: Joel Carreno

After seeing success with reliever Luis Perez, the Toronto Blue Jays have promoted his former Dominican Summer League teammate Joel Carreno to work out of the club's bullpen.
