Leading the way was shortstop Kyle Bellows, a San Jose native out of Santa Teresa High School, who was chosen early on in the day at No. 125 in the fourth round by the Cleveland Indians. The first three rounds were held on Tuesday, June 9, from Studio 42 in Secaucus, N.J., with rounds four through 30 conducted via conference call from MLB Headquarters in New York on Wednesday.
Following Bellows were left-handed starting pitchers David Berner (Rd. 14, 431) and Max Peterson (Rd. 18, 543), who went to the Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics organizations, respectively. Berner is out of Santa Clara, Calif., West Valley College and Santa Clara High School, while Peterson is a San Diego, Calif., native from San Diego Mesa College and Westview High School.
Senior right-hander Trevor Gibson was chosen by the Colorado Rockies in the 25th round, No. 751 overall.
Bellows hit a career-high .389 and led the WAC with 93 hits in his 2009 junior campaign, completing the season as the Spartans' career leader in runs and RBI. He was a first-team All-WAC and WAC All-Tournament selection, and was one of 15 semifinalists for the Brooks Wallace Award, given to the nation's premier shortstop.
