Boston College Has 3 Players Drafted in 2021 MLB Draft

Boston College had three players selected in the 2021 MLB Draft, with one of them going in the top 15.

Eagles outfielder Sal Frelick, the native of Lexington, MA, was selected with the 15th overall pick by the Milwaukee Brewers. Frelick was a three-sport star in high school, playing hockey and football as well as baseball at a high level. Frelick was named ACC defensive player of the year while batting .359 for the Eagles this past season. Frelick also was second on the team in long balls with six homers and also led the team with 13 stolen bases.

BC infielder Cody Morissette was selected with the 52nd overall pick by the Miami Marlins. Morissette hit .321 with 33 RBIs on the season, and was second on the team in home runs with six. Morissette can play multiple positions defensively and is a very good contact hitter. This past season, he did not hit as well as he did previously in his BC career. There is hope with his smart base running skills and solid fielding he may develop to be a Chase Utley type player.

The third Eagles player selected was P Emmet Sheehan. Sheehan led the Eagles pitching staff this past season with five wins and a team-best 4.23 ERA. He also led the team with 106 strikeouts (33 more than the next best on the team) Sheehan also pitched the most innings on the team this season, 76.2.
