Matt: Cole Austin

Why didn’t Cole Austin go ahead and sign with MLB instead of staying (transferring to Arkansas) to play a senior year of college baseball? Did he not have any draft leverage to lose, i.e., not likely to be drafted after his junior season?

I don’t think he has been drafted. I know he wasn’t drafted in 2019. I’m not sure what kind of draft prospect he is.

I suspect there is some hesitancy to draft him because he hasn’t really played in two years.

His deal is staying healthy. Pro teams want to see him stay on field. If he is able to stay healthy this year, he may get a pro chance.
