Rogers Clemens's son Kacy drafted by Blue Jays

Rogers Clemens's son Kacy drafted by Blue Jays

Procopio represented Canada in 2013 at the WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup in Taiwan.

Commissioner Rob Manfred announces the Minnesota Twins selection of Royce Lewis, a shortstop and outfielder from JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., with the No. 1 pick in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft, Monday, June 12, 2017, in Secaucus, N.J. The late first round was roughly around where Warmoth was expected to be taken according to various mock drafts.

Roger Clemens was the No. 19 overall pick by Boston in 1983 and later pitched two seasons for the Blue Jays.

Adam Hall, a shortstop from London, Ont., went to the Baltimore Orioles with the 60th pick.

Canada's only Major League team took shortstop Logan Warmoth 22nd overall with the first of their two first-round picks. He was the only Carolina hitter to hit the double digit home run milestone this season. The Blue Jays will pick next with selection 189 in the sixth round.

Georgia Gov. on escaped prisoners: 'No effort will be spared'
Both men have been serving long sentences for armed robbery and other crimes, according to the Department of Corrections website. Authorities in Georgia have identified two prison guards they say were killed by inmates who escaped during a bus transport.

Toronto also had a second-round pick Monday night, choosing high school catcher Hagen Danner 61st overall. After one year at FIU, he transferred to the College of Central Florida and in his first year there had a 1.56 ERA and 118 strikeouts and was named the JUCO pitcher of the Year by Perfect Game.

"We took three players from three different demographics, and not necessarily by design", Sanders said. In high school, he excelled as both a pitcher and a shortstop. Though he is committed to Louisiana State University and there is debate about whether he would fit better as a starter or reliever, Pearson has the tools to be a top arm for Toronto. In high school Pearson had a screw inserted into his right elbow, but since the surgery, he hasn't had any issues with it. He also has two breaking balls and is developing a change-up.

Because Boswell is a toolsy player with left-handed pop and a steady glove, he's widely expected to take advantage of his negotiation position this season and make the jump to professional baseball.

The draft continues through Wednesday.
