“A few days ago, the end of the course arrived for me with the Toronto Blue Jays, Mason posted on his Instagram. I learned a lot and came away with great experiences and crazy memories. I don’t know what’s in store for me in the future, but I’m excited for the next chapter.”
Mason was selected in the 26th round by the Jays in the 2019 draft, and he will have developed within this Major League Baseball organization for four years, including the pandemic period. He notably participated in 47 games with the Dunedin Blue Jays at the senior level.
Mason couldn’t stand out in the eyes of the decision makers, so much so that he suffered an ax when the Toronto organization logically acquired New Hope guys during the last draft.
“Decisions like this are not taken lightly, and that’s always disappointing to athletes and their entourage,” said Quebec recruiter Yasmin Roy, who recommended Masson’s selection at repeat. “JC” can take pride in what he’s accomplished and always has an impeccable work ethic Impurity. He was very much loved by everyone in the organization.”
Still very young, the Levi’s athlete can now take a new path, while continuing his progress in baseball. Quebec capitals may be particularly interested in his services in the Border League. Mason also knows DC head coach Patrick Scalabrini well.
Roy added, “If he wants to continue playing, I think his talent will allow him to have more great experiences.”
