(SECAUCUS, NJ) – Last night’s MLB Draft saw Ball State pitcher Drey Jameson drafted with the 34th overall pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Jameson’s selection came due to a compensatory pick the Diamondbacks received for losing outfielder A.J. Pollock in free agency.
Jameson was the highest-taken player from the state and the first Cardinals selected in the first round since 2010.
The right-hander set an MAC conference record with 146 strikeouts, which was good enough for third in the nation and got him league player of the year.
