The Toronto Blue Jays made pitcher Brandon Barriera their first pick in the Major League Entry Draft on Sunday.
An 18-year-old left-handed gunner, Barriera was selected 23rd overall by Canada's only Major League Baseball team. This year, he was playing at American Heritage School in Florida.
Barriera is ranked 15th in the top 250 draft prospects, according to the Manfred Tour website.
The Jays hold four other picks in the auction's top 100: the 60th, 77th, 78th and 98th selections.
Elsewhere, the Baltimore Orioles picked shortstop Jackson Holliday with the first overall pick in the draft. Outfielder Druw Jones was selected second by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
