MLB Draft Begins Monday

CLEMSON, S.C. – The 2015 Major League Baseball first-year player draft will be held Monday-Wednesday, June 8-10 in New Jersey. The 40-round draft begins Monday (first two rounds and supplemental picks) at 7 p.m. on MLB.com, followed by Tuesday’s selections (rounds 3-10) at 1 p.m. and Wednesday’s picks (rounds 11-40) at noon.

Clemson’s rich history of draft selections dates to 1965, when Tommy Chapman was the Tigers’ first-ever draft pick by the Philadelphia Phillies. At least one Tiger has been drafted every year since 1987, a 28-year streak. Six Tigers were drafted in 2014, including lefthander Matthew Crownover, who returned in 2015 and was named ACC Pitcher-of-the-year along with earning first-team All-America honors.

Three Tigers are listed among the top-200 prospects for the draft by Baseball America, infielder Tyler Krieger (109), lefthander Zack Erwin (117) and outfielder Steven Duggar (167).
