Jays Ink Jeroloman to Deal
It's expected that Jeroloman will begin his professional career with the Auburn Doubledays of the NY-Penn League.
The junior catcher struggled at the plate with Florida this past season, but there is no denying his defensive abilities. The top defensive catcher in the 2006 draft class is expected to carry those skills over to professional baseball. Despite his struggles at the plate, Jays Scouting Director Jon Lalonde believes Jeroloman has the tools to be a productive offensive catcher.
"When you put his swing up on the video board you see a perfect motion. You never would have though he batted as low as he did."
"I always felt I was a talented hitter," Jeroloman told InsideTheDome. "It was a rough year for me. I am ready to do whatever the Jays ask me to do in order to improve."
Jeroloman mentions Gregg Zaun, and Mike Matheny as the two catchers he tried to model his game after.
"I would love the chance to meet Gregg and pick his brain a little."
