MLB Draft Live Blog
The Blue Jays have a ton of picks today and they use their first one on Tyler Beede. Beede is committed to Vanderbilt, a commitment that most Vandy signs live up to. I have serious doubts about Toronto's ability to get him. Beede is a big project. He doesn't have great raw stuff right now but has plenty of room to grow and work on his filth. His fastball is in the low 90s at its best. He has a sinker/two-seamer that he throws in the mid to upper 80s. His secondary offerings consist of an archy mid 70s curve and a changeup that shows some promise. Toronto has essentially drafted a lump of clay that they will have to mold into a big league pitcher.
