Gwinnett shut out after first two days of 2017 MLB Draft

Dixie State junior right-hander Dylan File went No. 624 to the Milwaukee Brewers, becoming the fifth Major League Baseball draft pick from the Trailblazers since joining the NCAA 11 years ago.

No questioning Durant's decision now as Warriors near title
Then Kyrie Irving made the three-pointer that really won the championship for him and LeBron and the Cavaliers and Cleveland . The only game the 76ers lost in their 1983 championship run was to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals.

But wait! As disheartening as it may have been to some (or most) Orioles fans that the team took a high school arm with their first-round pick, they may have found a special one in the 18-year-old lefty from Warner Robbins, Georgia.

For the second consecutive year, the Cincinnati Reds owned the 2nd overall pick in the MLB Draft. He's hit from 90-96 miles per hour with his fastball and his slider and curveball both have potential.

After making 11 appearances out of the bullpen in 2015 and posting a 3.09 ERA with eight strikeouts, Keaton made the transition to starter in 2016. The righty is considered as having one of the best fastballs in the draft, a two-seamer with some sink to it that sits at 92-93 but has reached 97 a few times.

Texas Tech senior infielder Hunter Hargrove walks back in to the dugout at the end of the inning. He was named All-Chagrin Valley Conference Metro Division his junior and senior seasons in baseball. He was drafted by the New York Mets in 22nd round of the 2013 MLB Draft as a high school player. In 2017, McCoy improved from what was already a solid 2016 campaign, slashing.328/.394/.474 with five home runs and 34 runs batted in, all of which were improvements from the year before (except for RBI, where he matched his total).
