Two of Mississippi State's premiere relievers have been taken in the Major League Baseball draft as the New York Yankees selected Jonathan Holder with the 182nd overall pick. Earlier, the Yankees took Jacob Lindgren with the 55th overall pick.

Holder dominated the competition during his sophomore season, supplanting Caleb Reed as the closer for the Bulldogs.
