UA previously had two high school signees drafted on the first two day of the draft. A player who is drafted does not have to sign with the Major League Baseball team that selected him.
While it's unclear what numerous Tide late-round selections will do, Cyphert appeared to indicate his intention to join the Marlins, tweeting, "So thankful and excited for this opportunity!"
Two former Long Beach Poly High School teammates were drafted: USC shortstop Frankie Rios (Boston Red Sox) and Stanford left-handed pitcher Chris Castellanos (Mariners). The unanimous First Team All-Ivy honoree went 7-2 with a 3.15 ERA as the Quaker ace this season, reaching the 20 career win plateau to rank third on Penn's all-time list. He allowed 62 hits and 40 walks in 63 innings pitched while striking out 71.
One round later, the Seattle Mariners drafted former Apache Louis Boyd as the 723rd overall pick in the 24th round.
It is unclear if every player on every team will participate. He posted a 3.04 ERA and 11 saves over 24 appearances in his senior season with 22 strikeouts and an opponent batting average of.259 over 47.1 innings. He did most of his damage down the stretch, hitting.377 and slugging.508 with a.479 on-base percentage in League play. The tandem gives Brown multiple Major League Baseball draft selections for the first time since 2005. McGill-Toolen Catholic High School outfielder Leslie "Bubba" Thompson was chosen with the 26th pick in the first round by the Texas Rangers.
Dartmouth senior right-handed pitcher Michael Danielak was tapped by the Oakland Athletics with the 561st overall pick in the 19th round. Both are considered likely to sign pro contracts rather than attend college. Senior righty Nick Eicholtz, who was drafted in the 13th round previous year after his junior season, was also undrafted.
