Current, Future Cajuns Selected in MLB Draft
The streak continues for Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns.
The Cajuns have had at least one player drafted by Major League Baseball every year since 1982, and the streak continued yesterday when Cajuns’ lefty Jordan Harrison was taken in the 25th round by the Tampa Bay Rays.
Harrison pitched as both a starter and reliever for the Cajuns this past season. He logged a 3-3 record with a 3.42 ERA. His selection marks the 15th straight year the Cajuns have had a pitcher selected in the draft.
The Cajuns also had one of their signees drafted as well.
Ashton Goudeau, who pitched for Maplewoods (MO) Junior College this past season, was a 27th round selection of the Kansas City Royals. Goudeau, a six foot six righthander, was 5-5 with a 2.13 ERA this past season.
