PULLMAN -- Washington State's Chad Arnold and Shea Vucinich were both selected on the second day of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft on Tuesday.

Arnold, a right-handed pitcher, was picked by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 18th round (562nd overall). He started 16 of his 17 appearances this season, finishing with a 3.74 ERA and a 5-3 record. He also registered a save.

It's the second time Arnold has heard his name called in the draft. He was selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 36th round after his senior year in high school in 2005. He obviously chose WSU instead.

Vucinich, a Coeur d'Alene High School graduate, was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 20th round (609th overall). The shortstop played in 59 games for the Cougars this season. He hit .262 with four home runs and 32 runs batted in as a junior. That means he has the choice to sign or return to school next season.

The draft wraps up on Wednesday with rounds 31-50.
