The Blue Jays have decided to sign their 1st round pick, SP Alex "Smalls" Meyer. For all you Blue Jay fans out there, here is a player bio for the newest addition to the team's pitching staff:
In terms of their 2nd round pick, the Blue Jays have decided to give OF Shawon Dunston Jr a chance by signing him to a contract.
After committing to Vanderbilt, Dunston Jr decided it would be best to come out straight from high school and enter the draft. Will the kid out of Valley Christian high school make a name for himself, or will he forever be remembered for being the kid of former MLB shortstop Shawon Dunston, a former 1st overall pick by the Chicago Cubs in the 1982 Draft.
Blue Jays give FA Tags to the following players:
2B Aaron Hill
SS Yunel Escobar
Blue Jays will not be signing the following unrestricted FAs, allowing them to hit the open market:
CP Jon Rauch
RF Juan Rivera
C JP Arencibia
SP Jesse Litsch

After signing their 2 rookies from the 2011 Draft, the final roster count for the Jays is:

After a longer than expected scouting trip in Europe, the Jays front office will be up and running starting Monday, June 20th. While the team will be getting torn apart with a scheduled 7 games tomorrow, expect the front office to work the phones as Ricky Romero has become priority #1, and the Jays will be on the phones from tomorrow till season's end trying to strike a deal that will send their ace to a new home.
