Major League Baseball wrapped up their annual Draft on Saturday with two more Commodores hearing their name called.
Spencer Navin was selected in the 11th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers and Mike Yastrzemski was picked by Baltimore in the 14th round. The duo joins Kevin Ziomek, Conrad Gregor, Tony Kemp and Connor Harrell as the Commodores' 2013 draft class.
Navin enjoyed a stellar junior campaign hitting .302 with with four home runs and 34 RBI. The Dores' backstop was outstanding behind the plate, leading one of the nation's best pitching staffs and throwing out 16-of-43 would-be base stealers.
Yastrzemski turned down the Seattle Mariners last summer as a 31st round selection to return for his senior season and it paid off as the Andover, Mass. native improved his stock dramatically in his third time to be selected in the Draft. Yastrzemski was tagged as a First Team All-SEC and All-Defensive team by the league's coaches, hitting .312 with 25 extra-base hits, 43 RBI, 52 runs scored and a career-best 20 stolen bases. He ended his Vanderbilt career starting the final 203 consecutive games.
