With the 23rd overall choice, the Jays chose left-handed pitcher Brandon Barriera.
The Blue Jays will be selecting a prep pitcher with their first round choice for the first time under Mark Shapiro. This is still a really excellent choice, despite that. According to some reports, Barriera boasts some of the draft class's best pure material.
A short time after the Jays selected Barriera, a product of American Heritage High School, with the 23rd overall pick in this year's Major League Baseball draft, he made the audacious claim that every team that passed on him had just made a grave error.

After signing the pitcher rated as the best lefty available in both the high school and college rankings by MLB Pipeline and the Athletic's prospect guru Keith Law, the Jays will be hoping he's right. The Jays would be more than happy with that given that this was their lowest first-round pick since 2015.
Shortstop The Baltimore Orioles made Jackson Holliday their first-round pick in the Major League Baseball Draft on Sunday evening.

The Arizona Diamondbacks selected Druw Jones, the son of former star outfielder Andruw Jones, slightly ahead of Holliday, the son of former champion hitting Matt Holliday.
