2011 MLB Amateur Draft Summary

The following list contains info from the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft that might be of interest to Texas or Big 12 fans. I've also included players from teams that Texas played in the Austin Regional, the Austin Super Regional, and at the College World Series. Please note that the position listed is the one the drafting team specifies...not necessarily the primary position played in school.

Last updated: August 16, 2011

Notes: [s] indicates the team and player have come to terms (signed); [c] indicates the player has elected to stay in (or go to) college; status of other players is unknown to me (updates appreciated). If you hear of any signings or draftees I might have missed, please drop me a line and I'll include the info along with proper attribution. Thanks.
