MLB Draft Day 2 Thread

Friends, today is the third and final day of the 2017 Major League Baseball draft.

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.

Two former high school stars from El Paso were selected on day three of the 2017 MLB Draft Wednesday. Junior left-handed pitcher Parker Mushinski was drafted by the Houston Astros as the 211th overall pick in the seventh round and junior outfielder Tanner Gardner was selected by the Texas Rangers as the 284th overall pick in the ninth round of the draft.

Warmoth went 22nd overall to the Toronto Blue Jays (sigh), and the Dodgers pounced on Kendall with the 23rd overall pick. It's likely to take place at around 11:15-11:30, so check back for the Nationals' final selection of Day 1 of the 2017 MLB Draft. His fastball consistently reaches the mid-90s. It's worth noting however that past year they didn't take any high school pitchers until the 11th round leading off Day 3.

Murphy, a recent Fordham University graduate, was 6-7 for the Rams this spring with a 2.59 ERA. The Trailblazers have had 46 players selected in the Major League Baseball draft since 1976.

If the Giants' front office thought we were still in a window to win now, they would have drafted a college pitcher or hitter that could help the team in 2-3 years.

Tanner Houck, RHP (#24): From the University of Missouri, Houck had a lackluster junior season after pitching very well during his freshman and sophomore years.

White enjoyed a spectacular year at Kentucky, slashing.373/.453/.637 with 10 home runs, 24 doubles, and just 31 strikeouts over 248 plate appearances. Following high school, Rivera was drafted in the 33rd round by the Oakland A's.

It is the second straight season the Giants have selected the Huskies' closer as they took Pat Ruotolo in the 27th round previous year.

Other than these two, no other commits have been selected as of yet, though right-handed pitcher Joe Lancellotti is ranked at no. 190 on Baseball America's top 500 list of draft prospects.
