MLB Draft 2017: How, when, and where to watch
Sitting at the bottom of the National League West with a 26-41 record and nowhere near the type of playoff contenders they have been for the past seven seasons, the 2017 MLB Draft is one that the San Francisco Giants will want to find success with.
With two selections, this year marked the 16th time since 1977 that Western Carolina had multiple players selected within the same MLB First-Year Player Draft.
Hall became the 12th player drafted out of Valdosta High School - the second in as many years - and the first to be selected in the first round. 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. Three years later, his slot bonus has a value of $547,700 attached to it.
Here now we take a look at the Day 1 draft picks for the Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays, and how they project going forward. Brett Brocoff, a right-handed pitcher from Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas, was taken in with the No. 830 overall pick by the Atlanta Braves.
Each year, baseball pundits will relay the same spiel on how the draft is critically important. He has a career 3.97 ERA at the university.
"Once I get the the work visa approved to go down to the US and play, I'll be joining their minor league team and be playing in the Gulf Coast League most likely", said Hall. The righty is considered as having one of the best fastballs in the draft, a two-seamer with some sink to it that sits at 92-93 but has reached 97 a few times.
As a junior, Berardi can decide not to accept the offer from an Major League Baseball team and return for his senior season and improve his standing.
The Utes also had a high school signee drafted in the 28th round. The righty allowed 97 hits, but just three home runs. He struck out 20 in 20 2/3 innings, giving up 19 hits and holding batters to a.247 average.
Shortstop Adam Hall, a student at Lucas secondary school, was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the second round of the Major League Baseball draft.
