BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Former Stockdale Mustangs slugger K.C. Hobson, a sixth-round pick in June's amateur draft, signed with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Hobson, who hit 15 home runs during his senior year, just completed a successful summer at the Cape Cod league hitting .450 with one homer, five triples and four doubles.

His signing bonus for a reported $500,000 was three times the maximum recommended for picks taken after the fifth round. Hobson is expected to report to the Gulf League Jays this Thursday in Dunedin, Fla.
