The Blue Jays are facing three starting pitchers with ERAs lower than our best pitcher. What could go wrong?
Here's a little update on the Jays' only Top 10 pick not yet signed:
Griffin Conine is close to signing with #BlueJays, but they’re still working through details. He’s ready to get to work, though: "I’m planning on proving that I was the best 52nd-overall pick in the history of the draft. That’s my plan."— Scott Mitchell (@ScottyMitchTSN) June 15, 2018
