Tigers With Some Decisions Following Draft

Posted by willp on June 6, 2012

Blake Brown and Eric Garcia have signed and are headed to the Braves, but many other Tigers will face some tough decisions following the conclusion of the MLB Draft.

Both Brown and Garcia will forego their senior seasons to join the Atlanta Minor League system after Brown was taken in the fifth round and Garcia in the 20th Round.

Junior pitcher Blake Holovach will have to decide whether to return for his senior year or enter the Seattle Mariners system, after they selected him in the 27th round. Missouri senior catcher Ben Turner‘s decision is a little easier as he will take the catching gear into the San Francisco Giants program as a 21st round selection.

According to the Columbia Tribune, the Tigers had a host of players who signed to play with Mizzou taken in the draft:

P Alec Rash 2nd Round, Philadelphia
OF Bralin Jackson 5th Round, Tampa Bay
P Hunter Haynes 13th round, Kansas City (SIGNED)
