The Alabama Crimson Tide baseball team saw four star players selected in the 2021 MLB draft, all players going to different teams.
Just because they were drafted doesn’t mean they are guaranteed to sign with the organization, but it is very likely Alabama fans can say goodbye to these four.
The MLB draft can sometimes be overlooked, even by baseball fans, because players go into hiding within the organization’s minor league teams for a few seasons before getting an invite to the majors. However, these guys could soon join the nine other active MLB players that once called Alabama their home.
The first Crimson Tide player drafted was second baseman Peyton Wilson in the second round with pick No. 66 overall to the Kansas City Royals.
In Round 3 with pick No. 74, the Detroit Tigers selected right-handed pitcher Dylan Smith.
Then, three rounds later in the sixth, with pick No. 164, the Texas Rangers selected right-handed pitcher Chase Lee.
Most recently, in Round 6 with pick No. 179, the Miami Marlins selected catcher Sam Praytor.
