Corvallis & Eugene, OR -- Major League Baseball continues to get a lot more orange and green. Adley Rutschman, Beau Philip and Ryne Nelson had their names called Monday night in the first and second rounds of the 2019 MLB Draft. Oregon State’s Grant Gambrell and Oregon’s Spencer Steer are now the newest Beavers and Ducks in the pros.

Gambrell was the first off the board in day two. He was the No. 80 overall pick by the Kansas City Royals. Gambrell finished his junior year with a 5-3 overall record, 80 strikeouts and a 2.83 ERA.

Steer will join Gambrell in the AL West. He will bring his bat and stellar defense to the Minnesota Twins organization. The Twins drafted him with the No. 90 overall pick, just 10 selections after Gambrell was chosen by the Royals. Steer, who hit a team high .349 with six home runs and 57 RBI’s, was also named to the All-Pac-12 team.
