Two current Husky Baseball players and one future Dawg were drafted on Wednesday in the final day of the MLB Draft to bring the total to four current and three future Huskies selected in the three-day draft.
Austin Rei, a junior catcher, was the first Husky player selected in the second day of the Major League Baseball Draft, going 81st overall in the third round to the Boston Red Sox. About 17 minutes later, Braden Bishop was selected 13 picks later by the Seattle Mariners, 94th overall in the third round.
The Husky Baseball team has signed four junior college transfers for next season, head coach Lindsay Meggs announced Tuesday. The four position players – Francis Christy, Alex Galgano, MJ Hubbs and Gage Matuszak – each hail from different states. They will join a group of newcomers that includes 14 previously signed high school seniors.
