I'd count the signees as well. Should include all ties to LSU, up the numbers, we earned them!

Certainly I'm dumb, but how is the 38th overall pick a first rounder? (30 MLB teams total)

7 pitchers lost in the draft plus 2 signees. The pitching coach's gonna have to earn his paycheck next season.

Your upside is off the chart when you don't make an appearance or throw a single pitch and you're selected in the second round!

Cool but we saw what happened post 2019. However you look at it, that’s a tough rebuild.

NIL makes it a whole lot easier. Not sure its a tougher rebuild than what it took to get to 2023.

What does this mean? “ LSU also had four high school signees selected”

Players committed to LSU but were drafted in the MLB Draft, the NFL and MLB drafts aren’t the same. A baseball player can be drafted out of high school, not football.

Don’t know much about Mitchell but seems odd a top 10 pick considered going to college, surely he knew he was a first rounder. Must be one helluva pitcher.

Those high school players/signees aren't necessarily leaving for MLB because they got drafted. It's a gamble the MLB teams have to take(using a pick on a player that may refuse and stay with college path) The catcher Blake Mitchell may go since he was selected with the 8th pick in round 1, but who knows.

Based on this article it looks like LSU only set the school record. Does anyone know the record for the team/college with the most players drafted in a single MLB draft? I searched and didn’t see anything.

School record and only 20 rounds. The draft used to be 3X as many selections.

Coleman and Little will probably be back. The other guys will probably all sign. Mitchell should be the only freshman that LSU will lose.
