San Francisco Giants MLB Draft Results 2011, Day Three: Giants Take Stanford's Danny Sandbrink

The third and final day of the 2011 MLB Draft is in the books, with all the big boards emptied out and no stone left unturned. The San Francisco Giants concluded their day taking Waldyvan Estrada out of the International Baseball Academy with the 1526th pick overall, but also made a few other interesting picks along the way as well.

The Giants selected a lot of college talent on the final day, including Stanford right-handed pitcher Danny Sandbrink with the 1287th overall pick. Sandbrink is a former starter who now usually throws in long relief. He's appeared in 57 games over his three seasons with the Cardinal with 14 starts and one complete game, which came in the 2008 NCAA Regional. Sandbrink has a 5-4 record with a 4.53 ERA over 135.0 innings with 78 strikeouts and 53 walks, while opponents are batting .277 against him.

The Giants also took a Bay Area high schooler as well, selecting Benjamin Sosnick out of the Jewish Community High School of the Bay. Sosnick, a 6'1" 175 pound second baseman, was selected 1497th overall.
