Toronto Blue Jays, Tyler Gonzales Close To Deal

The Toronto Blue Jays and first-round draft pick Tyler Gonzales are close to a deal, according to John Lott of the National Post. Lott says Tyler Gonzales will sign close to slot and is off to Dunedin for his physical. The recommended slot for Gonzales, the 60th and final first-round draft pick is $857,200.

Gonzalez wasn't on ESPN's Keith Law's big board, but he did write about Gonzales in his evaluations...noting Gonzales throws 98 MPH but with poor command a violent delivery. The 6'2'', 165 lbs Texas high-school pitcher was also a University of Texas commit. He'll obviously forego college now that he's signing the bonus to play in the Jays farm system.

The Blue Jays have already signed another one of their five first-round draft picks in Matt Smoral. Now the front office will work to sign the remaining three of their first-round draft picks, including 17th overall selection D.J. Davis and 22nd overall selection Marcus Stroman.
