Two New England players selected on day one


Two New England players were selected on day one of the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft: North Carolina pitcher Matt Harvey, a graduate of Fitch High School, in Groton, Conn., and third baseman Mike Olt from the University of Connecticut. Harvey, drafted seventh overall by the New York Mets, finished the 2010 season with an ERA of 3.10 with 93 strikeouts in 90 innings. The big right-hander was rated as the 20th overall prospect by Baseball America prior to the draft. He possesses a fastball and slider that have both been described as explosive. Olt was drafted by the Texas Rangers with the 49th overall pick. Projected to hit for above-average power, he was the Big East's home run leader with 20 while batting .325 this season for Connecticut.

Here are some New England players still available who could hear their names called as the draft rolls on:

Jesse Hahn, RHP, Virginia Tech (via Fitch HS, Conn.)
Kevin Ziomek, LHP, Amherst Regional (Mass.)
Pat Dean, LHP, Boston College
Mickey Wiswall, 1B, Boston College
