UT's Senzel goes No. 2 overall in MLB draft

Posted: Updated:

Tennessee baseball standout, Nick Senzel, was drafted No. 2 overall by the Cincinnati Reds in the MLB draft Thursday night.

The 20-year-old junior hit .352 this season with a career best eight home runs. Senzel made the All-SEC second team in May and was an SEC all-defensive selection in 2016 while leading the Vols to their third consecutive SEC tournament appearance. 

The third baseman has gone the earliest a Volunteer has ever gone in the draft, and the 17th Vol to go in the first round.
