Doesn't exactly jump off the page as good PR for B1G baseball.

I could see interest in all 5. Selfishly, I'm hoping that Dreyer, Fullard and Bauman return.
You only need one team to have interest. Unless I missed something, last year's undrafted free agent rules apply again this year. It's been a few months since I've had a chance to talk to some of the guys, but I'm guessing if they get anywhere close to the allowable maximum signing bonus they will take it.

I’m curious if Irvine will sign? I’m actually surprised he was drafted. He was not on my radar.

I’m surprised the whole PSU rotation was drafted. I figured Virbitsky would go higher. Dees I can see because he has legit MLB velocity. Larkin surprised me, especially where he went. I was surprised to see Sommer from IU as high as he was. He had some definite control issues.

I guess that’s why I’m not a MLB scout.

Drew Irvine won't be back . . . now property of the Pittsburgh Pirates. (Note . . . . someone should have proof read the Iowa Sticks' tweet . . . "Pittsburg" - ouch)
