• The Mariners went out of the country for their first draft pick in the entry draft. The M’s picked Canadian prep pitcher Phillippe Aumont, a 6-foot-7 right-hander, with their first choice, the 11th overall.
• Lewis-Clark State junior infielder Beau Mills was selected 13th overall by the Cleveland Indians.
• Gonzaga’s Clayton Mortensen was selected by the Saint Louis Cardinals in the supplemental first round draft. The senior pitcher was the 36th player taken overall and the sixth to go in the supplemental round, which is sandwiched between the first and second rounds.
