MLB Draft
No Rice guys yet (they're in the 2nd round as of this posting). Seth Romero was picked in the 1st round by Washington - that's a bit of a surprise to me.

I think Glenn goes late 3rd or early 4th round.

RE: MLB Draft
Not sure if Romero would be up for a possible late season call up to the bullpen. The Nationals sure need help there, and his high strikeout, low HR numbers from college might work - if it winds up translating. He also doesn't have a full college season he's coming off of - but I have no idea if he's stayed in baseball shape.

Doesn't sound like a very mature person at this point - so can they risk it? They kind of already have by taking him in first round, though it is late in the round.

Otto continues to slip as a bunch of college no-name pitchers get drafted ahead of him. Now well into 4th round. Some one is going to get a great value.

I'm assuming none of our recruits are high draft prospects? It's been said on here that this is a strong incoming class but it didn't seem like any of the guys were high draft targets from the scouting reports. I think I'd rather be sweating it out than not have anyone on the boards...

Trei Cruz is very highly regarded, but the scouts know he's coming to Rice. Probably would have been drafted somewhere in the 10th - 15th round otherwise.

RE: MLB Draft
Congrats to he and his family.

It's kind of funny to see the results of the MLB draft tracker if you select the letter R for schools. The Rice guys included as possible selections are Otto, Chandler, Gray, Myers (no surprises there), along with Ricky Salinas (bit of a surprise but okay), and Cody Staab and Khevin Brewer.

ETA - I don't even think Staab is eligible. He just finished his second year and doesn't turn 21 until next month?
