Louisville’s Dominguez, Marks 3rd Round Picks

Chris Dominguez was picked by the San Francisco Giants in the third round of the Major League Draft, the 86th pick overall. Justin Marks was selected by the Oakland A’s, the 92nd pick.

Unlike top draft picks in the NBA and NFL, all of whom are expected to make immediate impacts, top MLB draftees are nearly always assigned to the minor leagues for several years to hone their skills. The entire 2007  first round (64 players) totaled one inning of major league playing time as of the end of the 2008 season; as of the 2009 season, the vast majority of 2007 first-rounders were still assigned to minor league organizations.
