Trio of Rebels drafted on Day 2

Monday didn’t provide the ending to the college season that Ole Miss was hoping for, but perhaps Tuesday’s news will supply a little solace for three Diamond Rebels.

During Day 2 of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, Alex Yarbrough, Matt Snyder and Dylan Chavez were selected by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox respectively.

Yarbrough, a first-team All-America selection by Collegiate Baseball as well as a first-team All-Southeastern Conference pick, was selected in the fourth round with the 147th overall pick, while Snyder was selected in the 10th round at No. 337 and Chavez in the 14th round at No. 451. (June 6, 2012, Page 2B)
