Draft Notes

-???????? All four of the Arizona pitchers taken over the two days were left-handers

?

-???????? Oakland must have a liking for Arizona left-handers that have undergone ˇ?Tommy Johnˇ± surgery after making back-to-back picks of Daniel Schlereth and Eric Berger in the eighth and ninth rounds. Schlereth had the elbow surgery his senior year in high school, while Berger is still rehabbing his way back to full strength after having the procedure done last spring.

?

-???????? Bill Rhinehart, Schlereth, Berger and C.J. Ziegler were all selected by a professional team for the first time. While it marked a second-time selection for Mills (2006), David Coulon (2004) and Colt Sedbrook (2004)

?

-???????? Mills and Rhinehart, who have both exhausted their collegiate eligibility, are the only two Wildcat selections that cannot return to the Arizona program next season. Sedbrook, Coulon and Ziegler will be seniors on next yearˇ?s roster, while both Schlereth and Berger will be redshirt juniors should any of them opt not to sign professional contracts.

?

-???????? The total of seven players selected is second-largest pool of players drafted in the six seasons under head coach Andy Lopez. Only the eight-member class of 2005 has been larger.
