Blue Jays sign their first round draft picks

Yay. The Blue Jays have announced the signing of their 2 first round draft picks. Right-handed pitchers Jeff Hoffman (the number 9 pick overall) and catcher Max Pentecost (the number 11 pick overall) are both signed. As usual the Jays aren't reporting terms, but Baseball America's John Manuel reports that both have signed for slot value (approx. 3,1 million and 2,9 million respectively).

This mean the Jays have signed all of their picks in the first 10 rounds, except for number 7 pick outfielder Zack Zehner, who apparently won't be signing.

I'm very happy to see this, not that pushing back a pick a year is a terrible thing, but I like the picks this year and I'm glad we have them signed.
