Western Carolina junior infielder Brett Pope was selected in the 22nd round by the Pittsburgh Pirates during Wednesday's final round of the 2017 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

The Orioles may have landed a gem in the 18-year-old Hall.

Next, the Orioles go back-to-back on Hall as they selected shortstop Adam Hall from London, Ontario, at No. 60 in the second-round.

Utah's Andre Jackson was selected in the 12th round (No. 370 overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers, which also drafted Ute teammate Riley Otteson with the No. 160 pick in the fifth round Tuesday. Pitcher Landon Leach was taken by the Minnesota Twins with the first pick in the second round, 37th overall.

The two Red Raiders are the 10th and 11th players out of Tech to be selected in the first 10 rounds of the Major League Baseball draft in the past five years, according to the release.

"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.


He was considered a top prospect going into the draft and he lived up to that expectation with the second-round selection. It's worth noting however that a year ago they didn't take any high school pitchers until the 11th round leading off Day 3. Though they were selected in the draft, the Red Raiders classified as juniors or lower can take the option to play another season for the Tech baseball squad.

Burns was the Class 6A Player of the Year at Decatur this season, where he was a two-way standout.

Romero posted a 3.51 ERA, 20 walks, 85 Ks, and a.256 BAA in 10 games (seven starts) and 48 2⁄3 IP this season.

After a short adjustment period, Hall went on to display all the skill and ability that led to him entering into the season as a MaxPreps All-American with a signed LOI to play baseball at Florida State.

High school players are trendy.
