Orioles draft high school left-hander in first round

Jimmy Murphy, a right hander from South Orange and a Columbia High School graduate, was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the eighth round of the MLB Draft with a 248 pick overall.

Day 2 of the MLB Draft continues Tuesday with rounds 4-10 taking place, which you watch via MLB.com live stream. Despite an accomplished fastball, Hall's prizewinning pitch is his crushing curve that usually buckles the knees of opposing batters.

While Reds GM Dick Williams said that Greene will be tried as a pitcher first, he said the door to the 17-year-old eventually playing in the field isn't closed.

"I think it's a deep crop this year", Rizzo said. It marks the 11th time in the last 12 years that at least 50 league players have been selected.

The slot value for the No. 310 overall pick is $131,600. Based purely on talent, he could have gone five or so picks higher.

The Orioles would follow up by selecting shortstop Adam Hall out of London, Ontario with the 60th overall pick and then LHP Zac Lowther out of Xavier University with the 74th overall pick.

Drew Rasmussen, RHP (#31): The right-hander from Oregon State was the 56th ranked player on Baseball America's pre-draft rankings. Their willingness to go to school likely played a roll in teams' decisions to pass on the two highly touted players.

Jackson, though, did not play the 2017 season with the Utes.

Romero posted a 3.51 ERA, 20 walks, 85 Ks, and a.256 BAA in 10 games (seven starts) and 48 2⁄3 IP this season.
