OXFORD, Miss. (WJTV) – Ole Miss RHP Gunnar Hoglund bet on himself, and it paid off big time Sunday night.

The Rebels ace was picked 19th overall by the Toronto Blue Jays in the first round of the MLB Draft. Hoglund is coming off Tommy John Surgery, but still went 17 slots higher than he did out of high school (No. 36) in 2018. He becomes the 7th first round pick in program history.
