The Dodgers concluded the second day of their draft on Friday by picking right-handed pitcher Nick Keener out of Division II Mansfield University in Pennsylvania in the 10th round, with pick No. 304 overall.

The Dodgers picked nine college players in 10 rounds.

Keener appeared in only 10 games in his junior season, all in relief, and put up a 7.43 ERA in 13⅓ innings pitched. In other words, the 5'11, 22-year-old must have wowed whatever Dodgers scout(s) watched him pitch.

Keener went to high school in Williamsport, Penn., and originally began his college career at Coastal Carolina before transferring to the Division II school. Keener bats right, and throws right.

The slot bonus for the No. 304 overall pick is $135,300, per Baseball America.
