Wolfe had the third highest batting average for the Senators this season with a.393 clip, and he tagged eight home runs, 12 doubles, a triple, drove in 42 runs and scored 60 times after notching 77 hits.

Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com calculated some interesting numbers inside the draft, which consisted of 40 rounds and 1,215 drafted players.

He was taken 377th overall by the Cincinnati Reds in the 13th round. He finished with a 5-4 record and a 4.10 ERA over 68 innings, striking out 57 and walking 33 in 15 appearances.

In the 23rd round, Cochise slugger Jamori Blash went to the Washington Nationals as the 703rd overall pick in the draft.


Among the incoming signing class, Anchorage, Alaska high schooler Jonny Homza was selected in the fifth round by the San Diego Padres (138th overall). He was also a West Division All-Star after appearing in 16 games with two starts and pitching to a 3-1 record with a 1.84 ERA and 21 strikeouts across 29.1 innings.

Wolfe and Stratton became the fourth and fifth players from WSCC taken by the Pirates, joining Bobby Falls (1981 third round), David Miller (1984 24th round) and Zac Fuesser (2009 34th round).

Ryan was the first UH player drafted since the 2015 season and the highest Rainbow Warrior selection since pitcher Tyler Brashears was chosen by Tampa Bay in the 14th round during the 2015 Draft.
