Clemson redshirt sophomore pitcher Alex Eubanks was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 14th round of the Major League Baseball Draft on Wednesday. Eubanks was selected 434th overall and was the third Tiger taken in the draft after Charlie Barnes (4th round, Twins) and Chase Pinder (7th round, Cardinals) were selected on Tuesday.
The righthanded pitcher started 27 games over two seasons and appeared 14 times as a reliever for Clemson. This season, he had a 7-6 record with a 4.09 earned run average. He led the Tigers with 105.2 innings pitched and sported a 104:15 strikeout-to-walk ratio for the 2017 season. Eubanks currently holds the all-time Clemson record for career strikeout-to-walk ratio (4.83).
The Rangers stocked up on right-handed arms, as Eubanks was the third consecutive one the team selected on day three. He was the fifth righty Texas took in the draft but only the second that hailed from college.
