That is a good start. Of course there are a few between the 3rd and 19th round we are interested in.

Other Blue Jay news:

Justin Jackson is coming off the DL and is being sent to Lansing from Dunedin. I'm figuring less a demotion, more a 'we need a way to get playing time for Hechavarria, Pastornicky and Jackson'. Though I suppose the team could have moved one of them up to New Hampshire instead of moving him down. He joins Kevin Ahrens who was sent from Dunedin to Lansing a couple of days ago.
