MLB Draft: Blake Brown Drafted by the Atlanta Braves
Mizzou OF Blake Brown was selected in the MLB Draft by the Atlanta Braves in the 5th round as the 179th overall pick in the draft.
He had been projected by some to go as high as the 5th round, and he came in toward the lower end of that round.
We'll have to wait and see whether that pick is high enough to entice Blake to go pro, or whether he would opt to return to the Tigers for his senior year. I would find it very unlikely that he will e back in black and gold.
