Wahl not drafted yet

Two rounds and two sandwich rounds of the MLB draft are in the books and Ole Miss pitcher Bobby Wahl is still on the board.

Some draft analysts projected Wahl, a junior right-hander, who went 10-0 with a 2.03 ERA this season, in the first round.

Wahl dealt with a season-long blister that affected his control and walk numbers. That could be a factor here.

The draft will resume Friday at noon with rounds 3-10.

The first player with Ole Miss ties gone was signee Cody Reed, a left-handed pitcher from Northwest CC, who went in the second round, 46th pick to the Royals. The Royals had a good deal of contact with Reed in advance, so the pick was not surprising, though some projections had Reed going higher.

MSU outfielder Hunter Renfroe was the first SEC player and also the first Mississippian selected, going with the 13th pick to the Padres.

Ole Miss pitcher Mike Mayers and catcher Stuart Turner expect to get calls on Day 2, possibly a couple of signees as well.

Six SEC pitchers went on the first day:

Florida right-hander Jonathon Crawford 20th pick to the Tigers,

Arkansas right-hander Ryne Stanek 29th pick to the Rays,

Missouri left-hander Rob Zastryzny in the second round, 41st pick to the Cubs,

LSU left-hander Ryan Eades in the second round, 43rd pick to the Twins,

Vanderbilt left-hander Kevin Ziomek in the second round, 58th pick, to the Tigers,

Arkansas right-hander Colby Suggs, CB Round B, 73rd pick to the Marlins.
