Familiar faces selected on Day 3 of MLB Draft

The Lewis-Clark State Warriors had six players drafted on Day 3 of MLB Draft The Lewis-Clark State Warriors had six players drafted on Day 3 of MLB Draft

Day 3 (rounds 11-40) of the MLB Draft concluded today and many familiar faces were selected. The Lewis-Clark State Warriors had six players selected in rounds 11-40 and are coming off their 19th and third consecutive NAIA National Championship. The Washington State Cougars had three players drafted on Day 3 (Jones, Matheny, Nealy), while the Gonzaga Bulldogs had two drafted (Frost, Bohling).

Southridge High School right fielder Mason Martin was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 18th round and may have a tough decision to make. Martin committed to Gonzaga before the MLB Draft and still could play baseball for the Bulldogs if he wanted to improve his draft stock. Isaiah Smith is in a similar situation as Martin, as he committed to playing for Washington State before being drafted by the Kansas City Royals.

Here's a complete list of all the local players drafted on Day 3 of the MLB Draft.
