The Toronto Blue Jays have signed 15 players from their selections in the 2021 MLB Draft, including all their picks from rounds one through 10 as well as a pair of non-drafted free agents.
The Blue Jays agreed to a deal with 2021 first-round pick Gunnar Hoglund on July 16, chosen 19th overall in the first round, signing the pitcher from the University of Mississippi for $3,247,500, $111,500 under slot for the 19th pick.
Other picks include Ricky Tiedemann of Golden West College drafted 91st overall in the third round, and Chad Dallas, who was chosen in the fourth round with pick 121 out of the University of Tennessee.
11 of the 15 players drafted are pitchers, with hopes to revitalize the Blue Jays bullpen, as well as two outfielders, a third baseman and a catcher. Both non-drafted free agents the Blue Jays signed, Justin Kelly and Harry Rutkowski, are also pitching prospects.
