This is a supplemental pick between the first and second round, received by the Dodgers when free agent Hanley Ramirez signed with the Red Sox during the winter.
Funkhouser was 8-5 with a 3.20 ERA in 17 starts as a junior in 2015, with 104 strikeouts and 45 walks in 112⅓ innings. He allowed two runs in seven innings on Saturday against Cal State Fullerton in the first game of their super regional matchup, fighting for one of eight berths in the College World Series in Omaha.
Funkhouser had high expectations for the draft, per Steve Jones of the Louisville Courier-Journal:
"Personally I would like not to get anything later than No. 20," he said after U of L's 9-3 win Sunday to even the best-of-three super regional. "(If that took place) I would be a little, I guess, upset with myself and a couple other things. But you never really know. Obviously I'm hoping top 10, and if not, we'll see what happens."
The last Dodgers player drafted out of Louisville was catcher J.J. Ethel in the 49th round in 2011.
