Valdosta High pitcher DL Hall was selected by the Baltimore Orioles with 21st pick of the 2017 MLB Draft on Monday evening.

Outfielder Austin Hays went in the third round previous year, also to the Orioles, at pick No. 91.

"Shortstop Jesse Berardi, a 5'10" junior who was drafted in the 40th round by the Phillies back in 2014, stands the best chance to be picked tonight or by midday tomorrow in the baseball draft. At 142nd overall, his slot value calls for a $356,900 payday, which may or may not be enough for him to forgo going to college.

The Baltimore Orioles selected D.L. Hall with the 21st pick in the 2017 Major League Baseball draft.

Canada was first recognized as a draft region in 1991.

The Canadian prep out of A.B. Lucas Secondary School is registered at 5-foot-11 at 165 pounds as he prepares to play college baseball at Texas A&M. While scouts also believe he will stick at shortstop, many believe that he has the versatility to play second or even third as well.

"Once I get the the work visa approved to go down to the USA and play, I'll be joining their minor league team and be playing in the Gulf Coast League most likely", said Hall.

Londoner Adam Hall has a choice to make.

However, with another strong season he could enter the 2018 draft as one of the top closing prospects in the nation.

The Utes also had a high school signee drafted in the 28th round. A true swing-and-miss type pitcher, Lowther has an impressive four-pitch repertoire and excellent command.

So Birdland, how are you feeling about the Orioles draft last night?
