Weekly Round Up: June 7 - 13

This week's Round Up will be draft heavy and a day early.  Here is what I can find on our picks so far.  Enjoy!

Important notes:
  • Toronto took 30 pitchers among its 56 picks (including compensation picks) in the 50 rounds.
  • A while back, I made note of a potential issue with a few of our compensation picks.  Check it:

The club also has its back up against the wall with a couple of the picks (those received for failing to sign ‘09 draft picks James Paxton, Jake Eliopoulos, and Jake Barrett). The representatives for the players chosen in those slots will know that the club has to sign the picks this season or they will lose those compensation picks for 2011.

FYI: that will be picks 38, 69 and 113.  Look for us to take sign-able guys in these slots.  Maybe some fourth year college players?  

For the record, we selected:

Noah Syndergaard with the 38th pick.  He signed on Wednesday night.
Kellen Sweeney with the 69th pick.  He may or may not sign.
Marcus Knecht with the 113th pick.  According to Bob, he signed.
