A day after pitcher Oliver Jaskie was selected in the sixth round by Seattle, U-M had five more players picked, beginning with third baseman/catcher Drew Lugbauer drafted by the Atlanta Braves in Round 11, pick No. 320 overall.

Wolfe hit.393 last season at Walters State with 57 hits, 46 runs scored, 12 doubles and eight home runs. He's listed as a catcher on the MLB.com website so that may his future position.

Joining the selections of Tide signees Bubba Thompson and Jacob Heatherly, who were taken in the first two days of the draft, three more members of Alabama's 2017 signing class were picked Wednesday. Cullman High School left-handed pitcher Jacob Heatherley was chosen 77th overall in the third round by the Cincinnati Reds. Cousins was at the forefront of the Quakers' success this season - as the team was 8-3 in his starts - due in large part to a season-long stretch of allowing three earned runs or less in nine of his eleven starts.

Minnesota Reps. Tim Walz, Erik Paulsen On Congressional Baseball
Williams said Republican Rep. "[Sen.] Jeff Flake took his belt off and made a tourniquet around Zack's leg to stop the bleeding". Steve Scalise was "badly injured" in a shooting at a congressional baseball game but says he will "fully recover".

Colton Waltner, a Newbury Park product who catches and roams the outfield for the University of San Diego, was also drafted in the 21st round, but by the Minnesota Twins. "While Nelson and Lescher have the option to sign or return, Cousins and Bleday, as seniors, will sign professional contracts and soon begin their journeys toward the major leagues". He appeared in only two games this season, missing much of it due to injury. Sixteen picks later, sophomore right fielder Chandler Taylor became the second Alabama draft pick when the Minnesota Twins selected him with the first pick of the 27th round, No. 796 overall. Craigie also had the second best ERA at 2.66. Chipola (Fla.) Junior College, had 10 players selected.

The draft continues through Round 40 today.
