After seeing eight UConn Huskies baseball players drafted during the first two days of the 2011 MLB Draft, two more were selected on Wednesday, the final day of the draft. This gives the Huskies a total of 10 players who were drafted.

UConn Huskies BaseballThey are:

  • 35th round – Doug Elliot, C by the Milwaukee Brewers
  • 39th round – Elliot Glynn, RHP by the Milwaukee Brewers

The Huskies saw OF George Springer (Houston Astros) and RHP Matt Barnes (Boston Red Sox) taken in the first round on Monday. On Tuesday, SS Nick Ahmed (Atlanta Braves) was taken in the second round.

Also taken on Tuesday were:

  • Round 17 – Mike Andreoli, RF by the Chicago Cubs
  • Round 18 – Greg Nappo, RHP by the Florida Marlins
  • Round 19 – Kevin Vance, RHP by the Chicago White Sox
  • Round 21 – Mike Nemeth, 1B by the Milwaukee Brewers
  • Round 30 – David Fischer, RHP by the San Francisco Giants

I wouldn’t expect any of them to sign just yet though as the Huskies are still alive in the NCAA Tourament. They’ll start play in the Columbia, SC Super Regional on Saturday against the South Carolina Gamecocks.
