The Washington Nationals took three outfielders (Andrew Stevenson - 58; Blake Perkins - 69 and Rhett Wiseman -103) in the first three rounds of the 2015 MLB Draft, and selected a right-hander with a Hall-of-Fame father in the 4th Round (Mariano Rivera, Jr. - 134). Then, with their fifth-round pick, the Nationals went with another pitcher, left-hander Taylor Hearn out of Oklahoma Baptist University.

"You're obviously going to send this guy out as a starter," Jim Callis said on the Draft broadcast. "Said this before, we'll say it again I'm sure today, big size, big arm strength on this guy, lot of upside with him."

[ed. note - "This is the last pick we'll do a separate post for today. We'll wrap up Rounds 5-10 at some point in the near-future."]
