Second round pick Mychal Givens was surprised that he fell out of the first round and was drafted by the Orioles. Steve Melewski tells us that, and his status for signing a contract with the team on his MASNsports blog.
Givens, a 6’1″, 185 pound shortstop and right-handed pitcher, had not heard much from the O’s in weeks leading up to the draft. But they called his name in round two, with the 54th overall selection.
“It was a little suprising it was the Orioles,” Givens said. “But I’m glad they took me and one day I want to help them win the World Series.
“I was disappointed I fell (out of the first round). It is how it is.”
