The Dodgers capped off the second day of the draft with their eighth pitcher selected in Michael Hobbs from St. Mary’s

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but the Dodgers drafted another pitcher on the second day of the MLB Draft. They capped off the day by going 8-for-8 with pitchers with their picks. It’s clear they went into the day with a motive.

Their final selection of the second day was St. Mary’s right-handed pitcher, Michael Hobbs. The 6-foot-3 pitcher appeared in 19 games last season, all out of the bullpen. He led the pitching staff with six saves. Hobbs posted a 0.72 ERA and 1.00 WHIP, while striking out 28 and holding opponents to a .172 average. His 25 career saves are the most in Saint Mary’s program history.

“He is the rare mix of a professional worker and genuinely good teammate,” says his head coach, Greg Moore. “Everyone one of his coaches and teammates were fist pumping when Michael was taken by the Dodgers.”

I tried my best, but recent footage from him and a scouting report was tough to come by.
