Orioles Selected Two New Pitchers And A Shortstop In MLB Draft

Canadian pitchers Zach Pop and Daniel Procopio were both chosen on Day 2 of the MLB Draft on Tuesday, bringing the total of Canadian players selected to four over the first 10 rounds.

While Reds GM Dick Williams said that Greene will be tried as a pitcher first, he said the door to the 17-year-old eventually playing in the field isn't closed.

The Orioles also selected INF ADAM HALL at No. 60 overall from A.B. Lucas Secondary School (ON, CAN) and LHP ZAC LOWTHER at No. 74 overall from Xavier University (OH).

With the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 #MLBDraft, the Cincinnati #Reds select RHP/SS Hunter Greene from Notre Dame (CA) High School!

Hall, who is committed to play at Texas A&M, will now have to make the decision to sign or stay pledged to his commitment. After making 11 appearances out of the bullpen in 2015 and posting a 3.09 ERA with eight strikeouts, Keaton made the transition to starter in 2016.

With their top pick, the Nationals went with one of the left-handers Rizzo was talking about in spite of the concerns expressed by scouts. The junior shortstop was taken in the 13th round by the Detroit Tigers.
