Wright is expected to become the 10th Vanderbilt pitcher selected in the first round over the last 11 drafts, a trend that started when Tampa Bay made David Price the No.

Wright was close with Vanderbilt teammate Donny Everett, who died in a drowning accident on June 2, 2016.

Coach Tim Corbin called Everett “a fun-loving teddy bear and a real Midwest American kid.”

But, Everett balked on a signing bonus of up to $2.5 million in June 2015 to instead play at Vanderbilt, according to CBS Sports baseball reporter Jon Heyman.
