2012 MLB Draft Today, Stratton Awaits Fate

Tupelo native and MSU junior pitcher Chris Stratton awaits his highly expected 1st Round selection tonight as the 2012 MLB Draft begins. Stratton (@cstratton28), the 2012 SEC Pitcher of the Year, still remains neutral about staying or leaving but it's assumed by most he won't return for a 2013 senior campaign. Completely understandable given the predictions MLB scouts, analysts, and blogs/websites are anticipating. Here are a few: -SI.com has him going to No. 24 (Boston) -BleacherReport.com: No. 13 (Chicago White Sox) -BaseballAmerica.com: No. 15 (Cleveland) -MLB.com: No. 15 (Cleveland) -minorleagueball.com: No. 13 (Chicago White Sox) Regardless of his decision, Chris has been a huge part of MSU baseball's success for three years. Bulldogs and even many Bulldog foes have respected his presence on the mound since his arrival in Starkville. Be on the lookout for other Bulldogs drafted in later rounds, too. Tonight's coverage of Round 1 will begin at 6 p.m. Central on the MLB Network. It'll also stream live at MLB.com/LIVE. ESPN will show "Breaking News" updates along its banner at the bottom of the screen, too. You can allow follow the Draft live on Twitter by searching the hashtag #MLBdraft or follow them at @MLBDraft.
