SECAUCUS, NJ -- Two Michaels were named in consecutive first round picks, but no Trout.
Millville centerfielder Mike Trout is projected to be a first round selection and is the one prospect in attendance at Major League Baseball's First-Year Player draft.
The draft is being held in Studio 42 at MLB Network. Trout and his family are sitting in a replica dugout, watching the proceedings. It can't be a lot of fun, especially when back to back picks were named Michael.
The first was Michael Minor, a lefthander from Vanderbilt, taken seventh by the Atlanta Braves.
Then the next pick, Arizona State righthander Michael Leake was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds.
Anytime a player named Mike is named in the first round must cause the Trout family some anxious moments.
