|Bluefield is now part of the Blue Jays' system|
The players that are hurt most by the elimination of Bluefield are going to be the later round, less competitive college guys. Players such as the recently released Brian Conley might be a good example. He was an older college player with good plate discipline. That sort of player might have no role with the team these days. Several players are sitting back in extended spring training and waiting for Aberdeen to open up. The Gulf Coast League Orioles have only so many slots with Dominican Summer League players taking a couple of them.
So, my ballpark figure would be the team signs at most 25 of this year's picks.
