Hurricanes ace Andrew Suarez was taken with the 61st overall pick in Monday's MLB Draft by the San Francisco Giants.
It's four spots lower than where Suarez (9-1, 2.96 ERA) was taken a year ago by the Washington Nationals. Suarez turned down nearly a $1 million signing bonus to head back to school and get his degree. But odds are he's not going to pass on the money he's due now to come back for his redshirt senior season.
Suarez is starting for the Hurricanes Saturday in Omaha against the Florida Gators.
Suarez said Monday he was going to sit at home and watch the draft.
