MLB Draft Very Good To Longhorns

The MLB draft is over and it contained very good news for Texas baseball. Six Longhorns and five recruits were drafted by major league teams. They were:

  • Kyle Russell, 3rd Round, LA Dodgers
  • Jordan Danks, 7th Round, Chicago White Sox
  • Kyle Walker, 11th Round, Colorado Rockies
  • Kenn Kasparek, 12th Round, Seattle Mariners
  • Casey Whitmer, 30th Round, Washington Nationals
  • Riley Boening, 42nd Round, Minnesota Twins
  • Robbie Grossman, 6th Round, Pittsburgh Pirates
  • Taylor Jungmann, 24th Round, Anaheim Angels
  • Hunter Cervenka, 27th Round,  Boston Red Sox
  • Brandon Loy, 32nd Round, Baltimore Orioles
  • Sam Stafford, 40th Round, Boston Red Sox

From this list, Russell is definitely gone, and Danks, Walker and Kasparek should be gone. Grossman has said he'll be a Longhorn and suggested Jungmann is coming along too. With Preston Clark avoiding the draft bug, Texas baseball should be stacked for a championship run in 2009.
