UPDATE: Huskies In The MLB Draft
Washington right fielder Kyle Conley was the first Husky selected in the 2009 MLB Draft, going to the St. Louis Cardinals in the 7th round (219th overall).
Shortly thereafter, Husky right-handed pitcher Brian Pearl was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the 9th round (269th overall).
UW quarterback Jake Locker was chosen by the Los Angeles Angels with the final pick of the 10th round. Locker has never played baseball in college, but did play summer ball for the Bellingham Bells last summer and was a top prospect out of Ferndale High School.
Most recently, senior right-handed pitcher Jason Erickson was taken by the Pirates in the 24th round. Erickson, from White River High, was a 45th-round selection out of high school (2006) draft, so he moved up considerably as well.
