UPDATE No. 2: Simmons, Moses and Grantham drafted by Atlanta Braves

Posted Wednesday, June 6, 2012, at 5:27 PM

The Atlanta Braves drafted three Southeast Missouri players on Wednesday.

Marty Mishow will have all the details on this later, but Southeast Missouri State pitcher Shae Simmons and third baseman Trenton Moses both were selected.

Simmons was selected in the 22nd round and was the 689th overall pick.

Simmons, who graduated from Scott City High School, has another year of eligibility at Southeast if he wants to play for the Redhawks again next season.

Moses, the two-time OVC player of the year, was taken in the 26th round with the 809th overall pick. He does not have any eligibility remaining at Southeast.

Kennett pitcher Adam Grantham, who just completed his senior season for the Indians, was selected by the Braves in the 32nd round with pick No. 989. He has signed to play at Arkansas State, so he'll have to decide whether or not he want to forego playing in college.

So...who's tipping the Braves off to all this local talent?

Not sure if you're joking or not, cadult10. But just to be clear, Adam Grantham just finished his senior year in high school playing for the Kennett Indians. He is signed to play at Arkansas State next year.

Simmons and Moses played for the Southeast Redhawks, not Grantham.
