24 Anglers selected in MLB draft

After three days and 40 rounds of the MLB Draft, 23 past and present Anglers were selected by professional franchises. Five players were selected from the 2014 roster, 15 players from the 2013 roster and five players from the 2012 team. Andrew Chin (2013, 2014), Sheehan Planas-Arteaga (2013, 2014) and Landon Lassiter (2013, 2014) were the three multi-year Anglers selected. 

Chatham had 18 players selected last year, 27 players selected in 2012 and 19 in 2011.
