The 6'3, 202-pound Rios hit .314/.421/.592 with 18 home runs in 61 games as a junior for FIU, the fourth-most home runs in a season in school history. Rios was 4-for-10 in the Coral Gables Regional, though FIU was unable to advance in the NCAA Baseball Tournament.
Rios was named first team All-Conference USA this season.
He played some middle infield in college, but as Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com said on the online broadcast of the draft, "His best position is the batters box."
Rios is the third Florida International player ever drafted by the Dodgers, joining pitchers Chris Sinacori (1991) and Harold Eckert (1999).
