Ogwumike named Pac-12 Player of the Week; Lacrosse releases schedule
Junior righthander Mark Appel, the eighth overall pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates in June’s MLB Draft, will stay at Stanford for his senior season.
In the midst of a run to the Super Regionals of the College World Series, seven Stanford baseball players were selected in the MLB’s first-year player draft this Monday through Wednesday.
The No. 2 Cardinal faces its highest expectations in a decade, with a trio of junior preseason All-Americans set to lead the Pac-12-favorite squad on another deep postseason run. Projected first-overall MLB-draft pick Mark Appel will start on Friday nights for the second straight year, while third baseman Stephen Piscotty and shortstop Kenny Diekroeger headline a lineup that returns seven of eight positions players.
This year, two Stanford students could achieve something that has never been done before: be the first pair of classmates picked first in both the NFL and MLB drafts.
