The 18-year-old Groshans was rated the No. 31 prospect entering the Draft by MLB Pipeline. He has solid tools across the board, with a quick bat from the right side and the potential to develop plus power.

Groshans' teammate at Magnolia, right-handed pitcher Adam Kloffenstein, was also drafted by the Blue Jays. Kloffenstein, taken in the third round with the No. 88 overall pick, has already agreed to a deal with Toronto.

Including Tuesday's signings, the Blue Jays have agreed to terms with 26 of the 40 players selected in this year's Draft, including nine of their top 10 picks.
