The 2024 MLB Draft is less than a week away with Mississippi State pitcher Jurrangelo Cijntje confirmed as one of six players attending the annual event in person.

The MLB announced Wednesday afternoon that Cijntje (No. 25 overall prospect), an ambidextrous heat thrower who played his high school years in Florida before moving to Starkville, will be joined by left-handed pitcher Cam Caminiti (No. 15) from Saguaro High School in Arizona; shortstop Kaelen Culpepper (No. 31) from Kansas State University; outfielder Braden Montgomery (No. 8) from the Texas A&M University; second baseman Christian Moore (No. 13) from the University of Tennessee; and shortstop JJ Wetherholt (No. 4) from West Virginia University.

While the MLB has not historically had a full lineup of prospects attend the annual draft – unlike the NFL and the NBA – a handful make the trip each year in hopes of hearing their names called in real time.

71 prospects over the years have attended the MLB Draft, including three-time AL MVP Mike Trout, 2022 AL MVP Aaron Judge, and three-time All-Star and 2015 Rookie of the Year Carlos Correa.

The MLB Draft will feature 20 rounds and be held in Arlington, Texas from Sunday, July 14 through Tuesday, July 16 with first-day coverage available beginning at 5 p.m. CT on ESPN, MLB Network, MLB.TV, and Days 2 and 3 can be seen beginning at 1 p.m. ET each day on

Cijntje, who compiled an 8-2 record with a 3.67 earned run average as a sophomore in 2024, isn’t the only Bulldog with big league dreams as outfielder Dakota Jordan (No. 34) is also considered by many as a first round-caliber player.
