Posted June 17, 2017

The first night of the 2017 MLB Draft provided excitement throughout, especially as teams went against mock draft projections with quite a few of the early picks.

McCoy continues what has become a strong tradition of shortstops being drafted by the Hawkeyes, as he's the third in four years to be drafted.

The fifth Wolverine selected was junior pitcher Bryan Pall, taken by Seattle in the 25th round, No. 753 overall. On the heels of drafting University of Tennessee slugger Nick Senzel in 2016, all signs pointed to the Reds selecting Hunter Greene, the two-way star out of Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California.

McMahan's selection was his second in as many years after being a 19th rounder in 2016 (Pirates).

The selection of David White by the Chicago White Sox in the second round of the 1978 MLB Draft, the 31st overall pick, was previously the highest a Wildcat had been drafted.

Three of Texas' signees were also drafted, including two taken in the first two rounds.

The Utes also had a high school signee drafted in the 28th round.

With FSU making its first College World Series appearance since 2012, it's no surprise they did it with a ton of players capable of playing professional baseball. His slot bonus is $313,900.

A total of 20 Canadians were selected over the three-day Major League Baseball draft, including 16 on the final day on Wednesday.

The Gators had three players taken Tuesday - SS Dalton Guthrie (Phillies, sixth round), and a pair of catchers in Michael Rivera (Indians, sixth round) and Mark Kolozsvary (Reds, seventh round).

While the 21-year-old southpaw wasn't on the top 100 prospects list going into the draft, Lowther may be a guy that exceeds expectations going forward.

"Obviously I would have liked to go higher". Most players drafted into the Major League Baseball are sent to their organizations farm team. It ends Wednesday with rounds 11-40.
