2023 MLB Draft for Bulldogs, Colin Houck

STARKVILLE — As is the case every year, Mississippi State baseball’s offseason relies heavily on the MLB Draft. Coming off another season with no postseason play, coach Chris Lemonis has himself a busy summer.

He’s in need of a pitching coach. The transfer portal is set to open soon. He has players, from his current roster and from high school signees, awaiting to see whether they’ll be in Starkville or the minor leagues.

Last year, MSU had seven players drafted. Six, with pitcher KC Hunt excluded, didn’t return to campus. The Bulldogs also saw three high school commits selected, and only switch pitcher Jurrangelo Cijntje came to Starkville from that group.
