2011 MLB Draft Results: Danny Hultzen Selected By Mariners, Anthony Rendon Slips To No. 6

After Gerrit Cole went No. 1 overall to the Pirates, many expected Rice 3B Anthony Rendon to go to the Seattle Mariners at No. 2 overall. Instead the Mariners went with Virginia LHP Danny Hultzen, who may be a tough sign. He receives a sizable inheritance if he goes to medical school in the fall. Rumors have his price tag at $13 million.

At No. 3, the Diamondbacks took Cole's teammate, Trevor Bauer. The top high schoolers, Dylan Bundy and Bubba Starling, went Nos. 4 and 5, respectively, to the Orioles and the Royals. Rendon finally went to the Washington Nationals at No. 5. He turned 21 on June 6. With Ryan Zimmerman entrenched at third for the Nats, Rendon will move off of the hot corner eventually.

1 Pittsburgh Pirates Gerrit Cole, UCLA, RHP
