Eighth-Round Rambling

• Two Auburn players were just selected as outfielder Mike Biannucci and leftthander Evan Crawford each go in the eighth round. Bianucci is thought to have big power potential but not much hittability. He’s very strong but lacks fluidity in his swing. Crawford has a power arm and thrived in the bullpen this year after his poor command hindered him as a starter.

• The Univeristy of Virginia’s Friday night starter Pat McAnaney was just selected by the Diamondbacks with the 258th pick. Lefthanded, McAnaney was the best starter for the Cavaliers all season and works off a fastball-changeup mix.
