Pitcher Kolton Mahoney and shortstop Tanner Chauncey both were drafted last year and return to bolster the roster for the 2015 BYU baseball season.

Chauncey hopes to follow Mahoney's lead of success immediately after returning from a two-year mission. The shortstop was drafted in the 35th round last summer by the Los Angeles Dodgers while finishing his mission in Brazil. As a freshman he was BYU's leading hitter in 2012.
