The Dodgers with their seventh-round selection in the 2016 MLB Draft selected center fielder Luke Raley out of Lake Erie College in Ohio, the 221st overall pick.

Raley is the second player ever drafted out of Lake Erie College, joining Ryan Rua, who was a 17th-round pick of the Rangers in 2011.

The 6'3, 220-pound center fielder hit .424/.528/.747 with 12 home runs and 11 stolen bases as a junior for Lake Erie in 2016, earning Third-Team All-American honors. He bats left, throws right.

Raley is the seventh college player selected by the Dodgers in their first nine picks.

Raley was named a 2015 First-team Summer Collegiate All-American after hitting .314/.412/.569 with 14 home runs in the wood-bat Northwoods League last summer.

He was not listed on David Hood's top 200 draft prospects, the Baseball America top 500, nor the MLB Pipeline top 200.

The slot bonus for the No. 221 pick is $187,400.
