White Sox Draft Devin Moore

Right-hander selected in the 27th round of the MLB Draft.
Indiana State senior right-handed pitcher Devin Moore was selected with the 813th overall pick in the 27th round of the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft by the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

Moore's selection marks the 13th MLB Draft selection for the Indiana State baseball program since 2009 and the fifth consecutive year that multiple Sycamores have been drafted, the longest stretch for ISU since a seven-year run with multiple draft selections from 1983-89. Junior Sean Manaea heard his name called on Thursday night, as the Kansas City Royals took the Sycamore southpaw with the No. 34 overall selection.

A native of Springfield, Ill., Moore pitched the last two seasons at Indiana State after transferring from Lincoln Land Community College. Moore led the Sycamores with 80.2 innings pitched this past season, posting a 5-4 record and 2.90 ERA with 63 strikeouts in 11 starts and three bullpen appearances. As a junior, the 6-foot-3 hurler appeared in 29 games, totaling a 4-3 record and two saves with a 3.69 ERA over 31.2 innings.

Moore's best two outings in 2013 both came against Southern Illinois, as the right-hander earned MVC Pitcher of the Week honors after allowing just two hits in nine shutout innings on March 23rd. The ISU senior took a no decision in the regular season contest, however, as ISU and SIU played scoreless baseball until the 11th inning when the Sycamores claimed a 1-0 victory. Moore matched up against the Salukis again in the MVC Tournament on May 22nd, scattering seven hits in a complete game shutout to move the Sycamores to the tournament semifinals.
