After his best year as a Bruin, first baseman Sean Bouchard was drafted in the ninth round of the MLB Draft on Tuesday.

The junior from San Diego was the only player to start all 57 games for the Bruins this season, while he led the team in runs (39) and RBIs (43). His .306 batting average was second and he earned his first All-Pac-12 honor this season.

UCLA signee Jeremiah Estrada went in the sixth round (195th overall) to the Chicago Cubs. The right-handed pitcher is the third player in UCLA’s 2017 recruiting class to be drafted in the first two days.

More from the second day of the MLB Draft.
