Today marks the first time since 2005 that no high school players from Massachusetts had been taken in the Major League Baseball Draft by the end of Day Two.

In that year's draft, only two Bay State high school products ended up getting selected. Plymouth North's Scott Savastano went in the 33rd round to the Chicago White Sox, and Springfield Cathedral's Scott Barnes went 10 rounds later to the Washington Nationals.

Buckingham, Browne & Nichols outfielder Rhett Wiseman, a projected top five-round pick headed into the draft, is still on the board after 15 rounds, to the surprise of some. Rounds 16 through 40 start tomorrow, and while it's likely somebody will pick him up, nothing is for certain.

Here's a rundown of the locals taken in the draft so far:

ROUND 3
109. Dan Langfield, Jr. RHP, University of Memphis (Somerset High) - Cincinnati Reds

ROUND 6
198. Matt Carasiti, Jr. RHP, St. John's University (Berlin (Conn.) High) - Colorado Rockies

ROUND 9
280. L.J. Mazzilli, Jr. 2B, University of Connecticut (Greenwich (Conn.) High) - Minnesota Twins

ROUND 10
318. Ben Waldrip, Sr. 1B, Jacksonville State (Ala.) (Medford High) - Colorado Rockies

ROUND 12
386. James Campbell, Jr. RHP, SUNY Stony Brook (St. Joseph (Conn.) High) - Los Angeles Dodgers
