Major League Baseball plans to loosen their restrictions on uniform rules for players later this season, according to a memo released by the organization. The West Windor, N.J., native went 5-4 with a 2.18 ERA in nine starts this season, en route to Second Team All-Ivy accolades.

LHP Karl Cragie (SR) 34 RoundKargie was drafted in the 34 round (#1019 overall) by the Miami Marlins.

"It was a proud day for our coaching staff to watch the draft and see these young men realizing goals that had been discussed in the recruiting process years ago", Schwartz added.


UA previously had two high school signees drafted on the first two day of the draft. He posted a 3.04 ERA and 11 saves over 24 appearances in his senior season with 22 strikeouts and an opponent batting average of.259 over 47.1 innings.

The selections of Muhl and Joey Bartosic (19th round, Colorado) mark the first time the Colonials have had multiple draft picks in the same season since 2010 when Eric Cantrell (seventh round) and Tom Zebroski (45th round) were both selected by the Kansas City Royals. Breaux batted.356 with a.476 on-base percentage this season. Cullman High School left-handed pitcher Jacob Heatherley was chosen 77th overall in the third round by the Cincinnati Reds.

No. 6 was junior infielder Jake Bivens, selected by the Tigers in the 27th round, No. 815 overall. "That's 63.5 percent of the 1,215 picks, up from 62.9 percent in 2016". The tandem gives Brown multiple Major League Baseball draft selections for the first time since 2005.


Muhl is a two-time Atlantic 10 All-Conference performer after earning Second Team honors this past season.

Henry was a unanimous First Team All-Ivy selection this year, after hitting.317 with 13 RBI and a team-high 31 runs scored. Senior righty Nick Eicholtz, who was drafted in the 13th round a year ago after his junior season, was also undrafted.
