Two Dutchmen Drafted On Day Two

By: Joey Palatsky

2018 Dutchmen Teammates Luke Murphy and Lucas Dunn both selected in 2021 MLB Draft.

Day Two of the 2021 MLB Draft saw 2018 Dutchmen teammates Luke Murphy (Vanderbilt) and Lucas Dunn (Louisville) drafted, both by California teams. Luke Murphy was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in the 4th round, and 110th overall pick, and Lucas Dunn (Louisville) was selected by the San Diego Padres in the 8th round, and 250th overall pick.

 

Murphy carried a 1.50 ERA in his 2018 Dutchmen season, when he was heading into his freshman year at Vanderbilt University. Murphy also picked up a save on the season, a fitting stat as he eventually assumed a closer role for nationally ranked Vanderbilt.

 

The tall righty carried a 2.40 ERA through 41.1 innings of work at Vanderbilt in 2021, while holding batters to a .169 batting average. Murphy struck out 61 to go with nine saves, the latter tied for the team lead.

 

Lucas Dunn was a PGCBL All-Star in 2018, getting the nod to start at second base as one of six Dutchmen named to the all-star team, the most selections a single team had in 2018. Dunn was named to PGCBL All-League Second Team, as the Florida native batted .325 to go with seven extra base hits and 18 RBIs in the summer. 

 

Dunn batted .266 with 10 doubles, 6 home runs, and 31 RBIs in his 2021 campaign at Louisville. Dunn also had a tremendous sophomore year in 2019 at Louisville with a .319 average along with 25 RBIs.

 

The 2021 MLB Draft continues on Tuesday, July 13th as more past and current Dutchmen look to hear their name called.
