Blue Jays Sign Noah Syndergaard

The Blue Jays signed supplementary rounder Noah Syndergaard, according to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Syndergaard, a high school right-hander from Texas, was selected 38th overall and signed for an unknown amount.

The 17-year-old was one of four right-handed pitchers the Blue Jays selected in the first 41 picks of the draft. Syndergaard throw 92-93 mph and has a "solid delivery," according to Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star. The Blue Jays, who would not have obtained compensation in the 2011 draft if they had failed to sign Syndergaard, can now focus on reaching agreements with right-handers Deck McGuire, Aaron Sanchez and Asher Wojciechowski.
