Topping the list of Cougars drafted was junior pitcher Bryce Chamberlin (Okanogan), selected by Baltimore in the sixth round. Junior first baseman Grant Richardson (Richland) was chosen by Milwaukee in the 14th round.
Seniors drafted off this year's 29-26 Cougar club were catcher Brandon Reddinger (Kennewick) by Pittsburgh in the 20th round and pitcher Aaron Trolia (Tacoma) by Seattle in the 27th round.
"It is a compliment to the program to have four players taken in the first two days," said new head coach Donnie Marbut. "We certainly would like to keep the juniors, Bryce and Grant, but we also understand this is an opportunity they have been working toward. The ultimate decision to stay at WSU for another year or sign a professional contract is their's now."
Marbut said four members of WSU's fall recruiting class were also drafted, although WSU cannot release new information on the Cougar recruits.
