For the second straight year, Pitt had three players selected in the Major League Baseball Draft. Last year, it was Elvin Soto, Ethan Mildren, and Matt Wotherspoon being picked. While Soto and Mildren left, Wotherspoon returned.

All three of the Panthers players that were selected this year were pitchers. Redshirt junior Luke Curtis went first, going in the 18th round to the Milwaukee Brewers. After that, the New York Yankees took some chances on pitchers Joe Harvey (19th round) and Matt Wotherspoon (34th round).

Since Wotherspoon finished his senior year, he won't be back with the Panthers. But Curtis and Harvey now have the difficult decision of signing with their pro teams or returning to try to improve their stock.

The Panthers took a significant step back this year in their first season in the ACC. It's still good to see some players drawing interest by Major League teams, though - even if they weren't particularly high picks.
