MLB Draft 2014: Dodgers select RHP Bubby Rossman in 22nd round

Steve Brandon | Cal State Dominguez Hills

NEW YORK, NY -- With their 22nd round selection in the 2014 MLB Draft, the Dodgers picked right-handed pitcher Charles "Bubby" Rossman out of Cal State Dominguez Hills, pick No. 669 overall.

The 6'5, 220-pound switch-hitting senior hit .259/.378/.452 with seven home runs in 55 games and won a Division II Rawlings West Region Gold Glove award in right field. But he was drafted as a pitcher, where he had a 5.40 ERA in eight games, with eight walks and seven strikeouts in 8⅓ innings in 2014.

"Bubby Rossman had great interest early in the season from many MLB organizations as a power switch-hitting outfielder, but his pitching late in the season had made him quite attractive to pro scouts and teams," said CSUDH head coach Murphy Su'a. "Bubby's arm is fresh and if he stays healthy will have an opportunity of pitch for many years to come."
