Day two of the 2019 Major League Baseball draft saw two Gators selected, one Florida signee chosen, and another Florida signee opting officially to go to school.

RHP Tyler Dyson was selected by the Washington Nationals in the fifth round with the 153rd overall pick.

Dyson was a hero in the 2017 College World Series and played an integral part in UF winning their first National Championship.

Dyson finished his career 11-5, but never found the knack he had in the postseason. He started the 2019 season as the Friday starter, but finished his collegiate career relegated to relief work.

In his last appearance, Dyson retired the Dallas Baptist side in order with a pair of strikeouts in the ninth inning on Sunday.

Gators OF Wil Dalton was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the eighth round with the 257th overall pick.

Dalton played at Florida for two years after transferring from Columbia State Community College in Tennessee. The junior crushed 27 homers and 94 RBI in the orange and blue.


Florida 2019 signee RHP Matthew Allan (Sanford, FL) finally got selected in the third round after being projected as a mid-first rounder.


LHP Hunter Barco (Jacksonville, FL) announced on Twitter that he will be enrolling at Florida. Barco was ranked as the no. 32 prospect by Baseball America’s Kegan Lowe.
