On Wednesday, Cole Daily became the third member of the 2018 Notre Dame Fighting Irish baseball team to be taken in the 2018 MLB Draft. Daily was taken by the Washington Nationals with the 671st overall pick in the 22nd round.

Daily started all 54 games for the Irish this season at shortstop, hitting .268. Daily, a junior, has another year of eligibility left should he choose not to sign with the Nationals.

With the draft ending Wednesday, it also means that junior outfielder/third baseman Eric Gilgenbach was not selected in the draft and should be expected to return to the Irish for his senior season after leading the team in home runs as a junior.
