Two Canadian pitchers chosen on second day of Major League Baseball draft”

The 2017 Major League Baseball draft is nearly upon us.

The MLB Draft continues today through round ten, with rounds ten-and-up being selected tomorrow. Another left hander Tech pitcher was taken when junior Jacob Patterson was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals as the 394th overall pick in the 13th round. Landon Leach of Pickering high school was selected 37th by the Minnesota Twins.

Junior shortstop Orlando Garcia was the next Red Raider selected by the San Francisco Giants as the 456th overall pick in the 15th round of the draft, according to the release.

Hall becomes the highest-ever drafted player out of Valdosta High and becoming the school's first ever first-round selection.

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

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. One scout said in the lead in to the draft that McMillan was the top local high schooler available, potentially as high as a late Day 1 pick, although pro signability was thought to be an issue. His slot bonus is $313,900.
