Detroit has given Texas junior Kody Clemens an opportunity to continue working in the family business.

Clemens hit.338/.427/.676 with 12 doubles and 19 home runs in 222 at-bats for the Longhorns this year.

The Tigers selected Auburn right-hander Casey Mize with the No. 1 overall pick on Monday night.

Games was planning for a surprise reveal later this week, though the "surprise", as it turns out, apparently will be Hitman 2 . The existence of a logo for Hitman 2 suggests that 6pm United Kingdom this Thursday we will see a sequel officially announced.

This marks the second time Kody has been drafted, as the Houston Astros selected him in the 35th round out of high school before he went to Texas. Clemens also had Tommy John surgery in 2016, and while he's played shortstop and third base in the past, he's probably strictly a second baseman moving forward.

"So proud of this kid!" The MLB draft concludes with rounds 11-40 take place on Wednesday.

Mize, a heavy favorite from early on to be the top overall pick, joins Frank Thomas and Gregg Olson as the only players from Auburn drafted in the top 10.
