CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State left-handed pitcher Matt Boyd has been selected in the sixth round (175th overall) of the MLB First-Year Player Draft by Toronto on Friday.
Boyd is 10-3 this season for this season and sports a 2.20 earned run average. He was named a third-team All-American by Louisville Slugger last week and is a two-time Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week. He was also named to the league’s first-team.
It is the second such selection of Boyd’s career after the senior was taken by Cincinnati in the 13th round last season. He did not sign.
Oregon State has now had seven players taken by Toronto since the draft began in 1968.
