Louisiana players drafted by MLB teams through Friday


The Major League Baseball draft started Thursday. It was a terrific day for LSU's ace pitcher Aaron Nola.

The Baton Rouge native went number seven overall to the Philadelphia Phillies. Nola, who was 11-1 this past season and S-E-C pitcher of the year for the second consecutive year, will forgo his senior season.

LSU signee Bobby Bradley went in the third round to Cleveland which might entice him to go pro. He's a slugging first baseman out of Mississippi.

LSU catcher Tyler Moore was selected in the sixth round by the New York Mets and already said he will go pro.

Southeastern's right handed pitcher Andro Cutura went just a few picks later in the seventh round to the Minnesota Twins.

He was immediately followed by Nicholls State senior lefty Taylor Byrd who was selected by the Seattle Mariners.

Seth Harrison, the right handed pitcher and outfielder, was first player off the board for the ULL Ragin' Cajuns. The senior goes in round seven to the San Francisco Giants.

Right hander Randy LeBlanc of Tulane was drafted by the Twins and came off the board in the tenth round.

ULL outfielder Caleb Adams was taken by the Angels.

The final thirty rounds of selections begin Saturday at noon.
