MLB Draft 2011 Results: Washington Sees 33 Players With State Ties Picked

A quick filter of the 2011 MLB Draft tracker shows an impressive amount of players with Washington ties picked in the 2011 MLB Draft. Of the Northwest states -- Washington, Oregon and Idaho -- the state of Washington came away the winner, with 33 players taken in the three days of the MLB Draft. Jeff Ames led the way as the Tampa Bay Rays made him the 42nd pick in the draft. Just 10 picks later, the Rays grabbed another Washington player, choosing Shorewood senior Blake Snell.

Snell is a University of Washington signee with a decision to make. In fact, Washington had two incoming freshman chosen early, with Robert Stephenson joining Snell as were picked early enough to make forgoing college a tantalizing option. You can find more on the two here.

Shorewood came away as the high school winner, with three players taken over the 50 rounds of the 2011 MLB Draft. The Washington State Cougars had five players taken, topping all schools in the state. Gonzaga was close-behind with four, Edmonds Community College and Bellevue College had three players taken and the rest of the picks were spread out among area schools.

Overall, it wasn't a bad three days for the state of Washington. Below is a full list of players taken, courtesy of MLB.com.
