Biographical Information[edit]

Shortstop Jordan Groshans was the top selection by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2018 amateur draft, with the 12th overall pick, out of a high school in Texas.

After signing with Toronto, he began his professional career with the GCL Blue Jays in 2018, and was promoted to the Bluefield Blue Jays of the Appalachian League before the end of the season. Altogether, he hit .296/.353/.446 in 48 games in a fine debut. In 2019, he played 23 games for the Lansing Lugnuts of the Midwest League, and was off to a great start, hitting .337, when he was felled by a season-ending foot injury in May. Thus, the forced pause caused by the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020 came at a bad time, as he was finally ready to get a first full professional season under his belt. If there was one small bright spot, it was that as one of the team's top prospects, he was invited to spend the season at the Blue Jays' alternate training site, where he could work out with players much more advanced than him in his development. He was then invited to major league spring training in 2021, although he was still considered a couple of seasons away from being able to actually make his big league debut.
