Three Red Raiders drafted on day two of the MLB Draft


Three Texas Tech baseball players were selected on day two of the 2019 MLB Draft.

Sophomore Gabe Holt was the first Red Raider to get on the board in day two. The Milwaukee Brewers drafted Holt in the seventh round at pick No. 223 overall.

The outfielder has a .337 career batting average with Texas Tech. He was the program’s first unanimous freshman All-American.

Not long after that, The San Francisco Giants selected Caleb Kilian in the eighth round. The right-handed pitcher went 7-0 in Big 12 games this season. Kilian was selected in the 20th round in last year’s draft, but returned to Texas Tech for his junior year.

Fellow pitcher Taylor Floyd was the last player to be picked on day two for Texas Tech. He will join Holt in Milwaukee after being drafted by the Brewers in the 10th round. Floyd leads the team in strikeouts with 78.

All three of the players followed suit of Josh Jung, who was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the first round.
