The Blue Jays finally did something different with the 295th pick in 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
After selecting nine consecutive pitchers, Toronto ended Day 2 of the Draft by selecting catcher Garrett Custons of the United States Air Force in Colorado.
Custons is a two-time All-Mountain West catcher who is solid on both sides of the ball.
This season, the 22-year-old has hit .353, with .441 on-base percentage, 22 doubles, a home run and 25 RBIs in 53 games. Defensively, he has thrown out 20 of 37 would-be basestealers.
Custons is a senior, originally from Sarasota, Fla., and was one of 15 semifinalists for the 2013 Johnny Bench Award, given to the top Division 1 collegiate catcher.
