Waiting Game

Seven current Trojans were selected earlier this week in the Major League Baseball draft and seven more incoming signees had their names called during the three day event.

Of the 2011 class, 3B Travis Harrison (pictured right) is the most highly touted prospect.  He was drafted in the supplemental portion of the first round by the Minnesota Twins.

SS Christian Lopes (7th round), LHP Stephen Tarpley (8th round), OF Ryan Garvey (15th round), RHP Wyatt Strahan (27th round), 3B Trent Boras (30th round) and SS Dante Flores (41st round) will all choose between big league signing bonuses and the college experience.

The Trojan recruits have until August 15 to make up their minds.

Ryan Garvey is the son of Dodger great Steve Garvey.
