I'll admit that I'm not quite up on all the ins and out of the First-Year Player Draft.... the main thing I do know is that What I do know is that several players on Oregon State's roster, including Ryan Ortiz, Jorge Reyes, Kraig Sitton, Greg Peavey, Adalberto Santos and Joey Wong will likely be drafted. From my knowledge of the draft, it seems like it won't be a matter of if they get drafted, it will be a matter of if they decide to head for the pros or stick around at college for another year.

But not only will it be guys from Oregon State's current roster, it will high school players expected to make a big impact this year. Among the players who are supposobly headed to Oregon State are catcher Andrew Susac from California, and football/baseball star Jordan Poyer from Astoria. Kyrell Hudson, Breck Ashdown, and Matt Boyd are some other names that could be called at some point during the 50-round process.

The draft begins this afternoon at 3:00 p.m., and the first round can be seen on MLB TV and on MLB.com.

With that said, who do you think will be back next year? Who will bolt for the big leagues?
