MAGNOLIA, AR - Southern Arkansas’ David Harris joins James Baune and Justin Thomas as SAU baseball players who have been taken in the 2013 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft. All three of the Muleriders selected this year were taken on Saturday afternoon.

With the three draft selections so far, the Muleriders have now had 11 players get drafted since 2009 and 28 since 1976.

Harris, the unanimous Great American Conference Player of the Year and all-region selection, was taken by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 36th round (pick #1,075). Harris, a native of Houston, Texas, is the NCAA Division II statistical leader in total bases with 148.

Baune, an All-America pitcher who went 13-1 with a 3.07 ERA this past season, was the first Mulerider to be drafted this year as the Los Angeles Dodgers took the Rockwall, Texas native with their 21st-round selection (pick #634). Baune is now the Muleriders’ 13th all-time right-handed pitcher taken in the MLB draft since 1976.

Mere minutes following Baune getting drafted, Thomas joined Baune as a draft selection as the Washington Nationals took the White Oak, Texas native with their 21st-round pick (pick #646). Thomas, the Muleriders’ all-time leader in saves, becomes the Muleriders’ fourth all-time left-handed pitcher to be taken in the MLB Draft.
