Bregman, Stevenson Selected in MLB Draft; Trahan Still Waiting
Two LSU Tigers were drafted in the first night of the Major League Baseball Draft.
Shortstop Alex Bregman was selected with the #2 overall pick by the Houston Astros, while former St. Thomas More standout Andrew Stevenson was selected in the second round with the #58 overall pick by the Washington Nationals.
Meanwhile, Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns shortstop Blake Trahan, who was projected to possibly be a late first/early second round selection, was not drafted in the first 75 picks.
Bregman was selected after Vanderbilt SS Dansby Swanson. He's hitting .312 with nine homers and 49 RBI. He is the second highest LSU player to ever be drafted, behind former #1 overall pick Ben McDonald.
Stevenson leads the Tigers in hitting with a 356 average with 26 stolen bases. He is considered one of the best defensive outfielders in the draft.
Day two of the draft will feature rounds 3-10.
