Two Beavers selected in the third round of this week's MLB Draft.
After seeing its highest ever selection in yesterday's first round, Oregon State had two more players selected to start day two. Left-hander Jace Fry and right fielder Dylan Davis were selected in the third round, joining USC pitcher Wyatt Strahan as representatives from the Pac-12.
Draftees have until July 18 to decide whether they want to sign with the team that picked them. Both Fry and Davis are still juniors, so a return to Corvallis is still possible.
Davis went 5 for 20 at the plate in last week's Corvallis Regional, while Fry allowed six runs in just over six innings pitched in his only appearance on the mound. Not exactly the way you want to end your college career, for either of them.
The White Sox have a pair of minor league affiliates out west in both the AZL White Sox and Great Falls Voyagers. The Giants are well represented out west as well, and Beaver fans could see Davis in Fresno, San Jose, Keizer, or Scottsdale.
Fry, the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Year, was the first pitcher taken in the third round, and Davis was the first right fielder. Dylan was largely considered to be the top college bat on the board when San Francisco grabbed him at 87th. There is also some potential on the mound for Davis, as he threw a fastball that reached 100 MPH while with the Beavers. Fry's fastball will top out in the mid 90s but he can put a decent amount of movement on it.
Ben Wetzler expects to be the next Beaver to hear his name called, followed by Scott Schultz, Andy Peterson, Kavin Keyes, and Jeff Hendrix.
