Three signees, five Red Raiders selected in 2017 MLB Draft

Three signees, five Red Raiders selected in 2017 MLB Draft

The 2017 MLB Draft kicks off tonight at 7pm eastern with Rounds One and Two and continues through Wednesday.

Brendan McKay, 1B (#4): McKay was in the conversation to be picked first overall by the Minnesota Twins, but contract demands made the Twins draft Royce Lewis instead of McKay.

Serratos could still be selected when the final day of the draft commences at noon today with rounds 11-40, though he said that unless the signing bonus offer from a team selecting him exceeds the likely slot suggestion determined by Major League Baseball, he would nearly certainly opt to play college baseball at Georgia Tech beginning in the fall.

When Ken Griffey Jr. was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame last summer, he became the first man selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the MLB Draft to land in Cooperstown. The junior is known for his velocity from the mound, as his fastball reaches up to 96 miles per hour. Going by his draft slot value, that means he's sitting on somewhere around $5,303,000 and could get even more if Oakland goes all-in for him.

McMillan was the area's only non-college player drafted.

The only game that was remotely close was the freakish first game where Pittsburgh only had eleven shots but managed five goals. The predators team now has nearly as many faces from their AHL affiliate this time a year ago as they do returning players.

Went 5-5 with a 2.92 ERA (27 ER/83.1 IP) in 15 starts for Xavier University this season and led the BIG EAST Conference with 123 strikeouts.

Of the 20 selections, 13 are current or former members of the junior national team program including the first Canadian selected, right-handed pitcher Landon Leach of Pickering, Ont.

As a junior, Russell still has eligibility remaining and can decide whether to sign with San Francisco or return to UConn for his senior season.

Reks was not listed on either David Hood's top 200 draft prospects, the Baseball America top 500, nor the MLB Pipeline top 200.

A senior who played two summers for the Baltimore Redbirds in the Cal Ripken Summer League, Breazeale hit.342/.410/.523 with eight home runs for the Demon Deacons. In 127 plate appearances, he struck out just seven times and drew 22 walks.
