Three Illini (and one Illini recruit) were drafted today, the second day of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
|MLB Team||Baltimore Orioles|
|MLB Team||Arizona Diamondbacks|
|MLB Team||Minnesota Twins|
Also, Illinois recruit Charlie Tilson was chosen in the second round (79th overall) by the Cardinals.
Overall, the Big Ten has had nine players drafted so far. Illinois leads the conference with three and Michigan State has two. It’s definitely a testament to the idea that scouts are looking for proven winners.
The draft concludes tomorrow.
Congrats to Adam, Josh and Corey!
