Chamberlain is listed as a junior LHP/Outfielder on OSUbeavers.com. So, he still has at least one year of eligibility if he wanted to return to Oregon State.
As for MacLean, he committed to attending the University of Washington this fall before he was drafted.
Chamberlain’s draft slot value is $554,300, while MacLean’s draft slot value is $502,300, according to the MLB.com. Could that be enough to lure each to the majors? We’ll just have to wait and see.
