Matt Smoral picked by Toronto in MLB draft

Solon LHP Matt Smoral was taken 50th overall by the Blue Jays as a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds. Not bad, especially considering the fact that Smoral missed his senior season with a stress fracture in his foot.

Former Blue Jay pitcher Pat Hentgen made the announcement at the MLB draft headquarters and mispronounced Solon as "Salon."

Former Indian GM John Hart and Harold Reynolds raved about Smoral's potential as a power pitcher. Hart also noted the fact that Smoral has a scholarship to the University of North Carolina and may be reluctant to turn pro. Reynolds argued that he should take the money and sign.
