The MLB Draft is continuing forward today, and the Indians have now made their first five selections. Let’s learn a bit more about the latest three selections since second-rounder RHP Mitchell Brown.

At pick No. 110 overall in the third round, the Tribe picked RHP Kieran Lovegrove from Mission Viejo HS (CA). He is 6-foot-4 and was a big favorite of ESPN’s Keith Law, who ranked him 47th overall. Lovegrove went 6-3 with a 1.58 ERA during his senior season, and is committed to play at Arizona State.

After that, Cleveland stayed in the high school ranks in picking OF D’Vone McClure from Jacksonville HS (AR) at the No. 143 pick in the fourth round. The right-handed hitter, who is 6-foot-3 and a solid athlete, batted .412 (35-for-85) with 12 doubles, one homer, 15 RBI, 26 steals and 28 runs scored during his senior season. He is committed to play at Arkansas.

The team’s fifth round selection (No. 173 overall) then was RHP Dylan Baker from Western Nevada Community College. Baker, who is 6-foot-2 and also was initially though to be a second-round prospect, was the Scenic West Athletic Conference’s Pitcher of the Year this season. He finished with a 13-0 record and a 1.91 ERA, striking out 126 batters in 84.2 IP.
