Nearly 30 baseball players from North Texas are likely to be selected in the major league draft, which begins with the first and second rounds at 6 p.m. Monday on the MLB Network.

Three players from TCU are expected to be among the first five local prospects to go, including slugger Luken Baker and pitchers Durbin Feltman and Sean Wymer. Dallas Baptist outfielder Jameson Hannah, who is hitting .363 with 24 doubles, six home runs and 48 RBIs for the Patriots in 2018, is pegged to be the top pick from the area. Hannah attended Flower Mound High School.

Two Forney High School pitchers are the top area high school prospects. Left-hander Jonathan Childress and right-hander Mason Englert have both signed with Texas A&M. They're ranked as the No. 107 and 126 top prospects.

The Fort Worth-area has several high school players expected to be draft, including Timber Creek High School shortstop Mateo Gil. He is the son of former Rangers infielder Benji Gil and is signed with TCU.
