Zeringue, a 2004 USA TODAY/Sports Weekly first-team all-American, was chosen in the second round (56th pick) by the Arizona Diamondbacks, and Holt was selected in the third round (101st pick) by the Atlanta Braves.
MLB teams completed the first 18 rounds of the 50-round draft on Monday. The remaining 32 rounds will take place on Tuesday.
Zeringue, the 2004 Southeastern Conference Co-Player of the Year, is hitting .389 (93-for-239) this season with 19 doubles, two triples, 12 homers, 54 RBI and 54 runs.
Zeringue, a junior from Thibodaux, La., batted a league-best .432 (51-for-118) in SEC regular-season games with six doubles, one triple, seven homers, 26 RBI and 28 runs.
Zeringue was selected for the second time in his career, as he was also chosen as a high school senior in the 2001 draft (third round) by the Chicago White Sox.
Holt, a junior from Sieper, La., is hitting a team-high .396 (101-for-255) with 18 doubles, three triples, five homers, 48 RBI, 69 runs and 20 steals.
A 2004 first-team all-SEC selection, Holt was named to the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional all-tournament team as he batted .385 (5-for-13) in three games with one double and five RBI.
Holt is just nine hits shy of tying Brandon Larson (110 hits in 1997) for first place on the LSU single-season hits list.
