(Ringgold, Ga.) were both chosen in the sixth round. Clemson's four top-10-round selections tied for sixth most among Division I schools.

Jalen Miller was drafted in the third round (No. 95 overall pick) by the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. Miller, an infielder from Atlanta, Ga. who attended Riverwood International Charter School, joined Cornelius Randolph, who was chosen with the No. 10 overall pick by the Phillies on Monday, as Tiger signees picked in the first three rounds.

Erwin was the first current Tiger selected, as he was drafted by the Chicago White Sox with the No. 112 overall pick. He was 7-4 with a 3.04 ERA in 106.2 innings pitched over 17 appearances (16 starts) in 2015. Erwin also had 92 strikeouts against only 16 walks, as his 5.75 strikeout-to walk ratio (No. 2) and 1.35 walks per nine innings pitched (No. 3) were both top-three marks in school history.

Krieger was drafted by the Cleveland Indians with the No. 124 overall selection. In 2015, he batted .339 with 41 RBIs and led the team in on-base percentage (.448) and steals (14) on his way to earning Second-Team All-ACC honors for the second year in a row.

Duggar was selected by the San Francisco Giants with the No. 186 overall pick. He earned Third-Team All-ACC honors for the second year in a row in 2015 after hitting .304 with 56 runs, five homers, 43 RBIs, a .432 on-base percentage, 54 walks and 10 steals. Duggar has started all 184 games of his Clemson career.

Crownover rounded out the Tigers' day-two picks when he was drafted by the Washington Nationals with the No. 194 overall selection. In 2015, he was a first-team All-American and was named ACC Pitcher-of-the-Year. Crownover was 10-3 with a 1.82 ERA and .183 opponents' batting average in 109.0 innings pitched over 16 starts. His 1.82 ERA was the best mark by a Tiger since 1998 and the best mark by a Tiger starter since 1977, while his 108 strikeouts were the most by a Tiger since 1996.

The 2015 draft concludes Wednesday at noon with rounds 11-40 on MLB.com.
