InsideTheDome: How did it feel when you saw your name on the screen?
Nathan Jennings:: My dad called me first because he was watching the screen. It was the
best stress reliever I could get. I was really happy.
InsideTheDome: Why do you think you will be an asset to the Blue Jays?
Nathan Jennings:: I think my work ethic will be an asset; I'm not a guy who just sits back.
InsideTheDome: Can you talk a little bit about your repertoire on the mound, what pitches you throw and how hard.
Nathan Jennings:: I throw a fast ball which tops out at 94 but is usually around 92, a slider is around 81 to 82 and a circle change which is my pitch I throw to lefty batters.
InsideTheDome: Which pitch do you consider your best?
Nathan Jennings:: My strike out pitch is my slider and my best. I've been pitching for five years.
InsideTheDome: What do you want to improve on most?
Nathan Jennings:: My mental game. I'll be a reliever so mental concentration is key. I enjoy coming out of the bullpen.
InsideTheDome: Who in the majors would you model yourself after?
Nathan Jennings:: Nolan Ryan. I shoot for the best.
InsideTheDome: Did you anticipate being selected by the Blue Jays and in this round?
Nathan Jennings:: They were most aggressively recruiting me, so it wasn't a shock.
InsideTheDome: Are you going to accept the offer?
Nathan Jennings:: Definitely
InsideTheDome: So do you plan to negotiate still?
Nathan Jennings:: Andy the area scout for the Blue Jays is flying back to Texas from Canada tomorrow. So we'll figure out more then what will be happening with the contract.
InsideTheDome: I've heard from some of the other draftees that they are going down to Florida next week, is that something you are doing also? Is that when you expect to sign?
Nathan Jennings:: Yes, Monday or Tuesday I'll go to Dunedin, I'll sign a contract there.
