Published by on June 12, 2014

Numerous players selected in the 2014 MLB draft had little time to celebrate because the team they were still on was in the College World Series.

Eight teams remain in double-elimination play. Here are the best players on those eight teams to watch out for—they may be competing in another World Series soon enough.


5. OF Mike Papi, Virginia

Selected 38th overall by the Cleveland Indians

Mike Papi isn't quite the size of Big Papi, but he has great size at 6'3", 210 pounds. And he fittingly leads his team in home runs.

Papi has hit 11 bombs this season. He also has a batting average of .311 and 54 RBIs. He's the best hitter on a talented Virginia team that scored 352 runs this season, fourth most of the teams remaining.


4. OF Derek Fisher, Virginia

Selected 37th overall by the Houston Astros
