Re: Fau players drafted

14? 15?

I thought we had a pitcher that was going in the 8th?

When are we going to have someone go to the majors and represent??

What rounds will take you right to the MLB??

Well last years top 5 picks are still in single A so I guess it takes a long time to make it to MLB level

Re: Fau players drafted

The MLB draft is a bigger crapshoot than the other major sports. No draft position is going to get you right to the majors....average time from being drafted to making the Major League team is probably around 4 or 5 years and some guys it takes longer than that. Usually college pitchers, especially college relievers take the shortest amount of time.

Re: Fau players drafted

Jeff Fiorentino went to the pros last year. When Sammy Sosa got injured, he stepped in for a few weeks and I think went 3 for 3 or 4 for 4 in his first game.

Carmen Cali was a pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals a few seasons ago. Don't know where he is now.

Cali is in Triple-A with the Twins, while Fiorentino just got picked up again by the Orioles after starting the season on the A's opening-day roster in Japan.
