Blue Jays add another righty with 46th pick
By Gregor Chisholm / MLB.com
Musgrove has already committed to play for San Diego State. Toronto has until Aug. 15 to sign him to a contract. If the club is unable to do so, it will receive the No. 46 pick in next year's Draft.
The pick is yet another example of the Blue Jays targeting tall and athletic starting pitchers. The club used its first selection (21st overall) to take 6-foot-4 high school right-hander Tyler Beede.In 2010, the club used six of its first eight picks on pitchers. All of those hurlers were at least 6-foot-3, as the club put an emphasis on size and durability. The Blue Jays received the No. 46 pick after catcher John Buck signed a multiyear contract with the Marlins during the offseason. It was the second of four selections the Blue Jays had between the first and second rounds of the Draft. Also on Day 1, Toronto selected Tyler Beede (No. 21), outfielder Jacob Anderson (No. 35), outfielder Dwight Smith (No. 53) and right-hander Kevin Comer (No. 57).
