Canadian content! The Blue Jays kicked off the second day of the Major League Baseball Draft by grabbing Dasan Brown, an outfielder from Abbey Park High School. Brown, who’s from Oakville, is the first Canadian selected in this year’s draft.
Brown, who attends Abbey Park High School and plays for the Canadian Junior Nation Team, is a player who grew up in the Blue Jays’ backyard. His best attributes right now are his speed and athleticism, but there seems to be potential for him to grow into a power bat. He’s committed to Texas A&M and has a recommended slot value of $678.60k.
