Other notable first round picks include outfielder Austin Beck out of North Davidson High School, (Athletics, 6th overall), North Carolina RHP J.B. Bukauskas, (Astros, 15th overall), and RHP Alex Faedo out of Florida (Tigers, 18th overall.) In the second round, the Yankees added right-handed pitcher Matt Sauer out of Ernest Righetti High School with the 54th overall pick, while the Mets took American Heritage third baseman Mark Vientos with the 59th pick.

"I feel like I haven't even grown into any of my man strength yet", he said. There could be another Clemens taken Wednesday when the draft wraps up with rounds 11-40: Kacy's younger brother Kody, a redshirt-sophomore shortstop who hit.241 with five homers and 23 RBIs for Texas.

One player who has gone undrafted so far and slipped significantly is Oregon State left-hander Luke Heimlich, who asked to be excused from the team last weekend after a story detailing his criminal history was reported by The Oregonian/Oregon Live last Thursday. Minnesota took hometown catcher Joe Mauer first overall in 2001 and right-hander Tim Belcher with the first pick of the 1983 draft.

And in a Major League Baseball draft stocked with two-way talents at the top, the first-place Minnesota Twins went another way Monday night.

Weeks before the draft, a report emerged suggesting the Twins would not take flame-throwing high school pitcher Hunter Greene with the No. 1 overall pick.

Attorney: Trump not under investigation
The president fired back over Twitter and at a news conference, claiming that some of the things Comey said weren't true. Comey famously rushed to the bedside of a hospitalized Ashcroft to talk him out of reauthorizing the program.

Roger Clemens was the No. 19 overall pick by Boston in 1983 and later pitched two seasons for the Blue Jays. Lewis won't cost quite as much, giving the Twins more leverage for the rest of their negotiations.

"It's an obvious trait he has".

"This guy gets it", said Mike Radcliff, the Twins" vice president for player personnel. "You want to see that kid excel because that's how good of a kid he is".

For Lewis, who has signed with UC Irvine, celebration of the moment meant cake and bowling with his family.

"This is just a once-in-a-lifetime experience where I get to go out and start my career and have a blast with a great ballclub and a great group of guys", Greene said.

Warriors say they haven't received White House invitation yet
Head coach Steve Kerr has been a vocal critic of US President Donald Trump since the election, slamming his proposed travel ban .

"I have no pressure". "I just turned 18 last week".

The Twins chose Lewis over Louisville's Brendan McKay, who had a.343 batting average with 17 home runs and 56 RBIs as a first baseman, while he also struck out 140 batters over 104 innings as a pitcher with a 2.34 ERA.

Then, at No. 65, SC right-handed pitcher Wil Crowe was selected by the Washington Nationals.

Hunter Greene (left) went No. 2 overall to the Reds in the 2017 MLB Draft. The LSU signee was ranked by Baseball America as the 33rd-best prospect available this year. It was suggested to me that if Lewis didn't go first, he could tumble to seven. that might give the Twins an extra $1.75 million to play around with.

Witch Hunt." It was the first time Trump had publicly acknowledged that he's under investigation. Angus King, an independent from ME , stressed that the probe will likely last for a long time.
