Two Indiana standouts were taken on the first night of the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft on Thursday. Catcher Kyle Schwarber was selected by the Chicago Cubs with the fourth overall pick, becoming the highest Big Ten player selected in the draft since Michigan State pitcher Mark Mulder was the second selection in the 1998 draft. Schwarber was a unanimous first-team All-Big Ten selection, the Big Ten Tournament's Most Outstanding Player and a finalist for the Johnny Bench Award, given annually to the nation's top catcher. First baseman Sam Travis was selected in the second round, 67th overall, to the Boston Red Sox. The Big Ten Player of the Year and unanimous All-Big Ten choice, Travis led the conference with 85 hits and 58 RBI in 2014. He was a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award.
