Tiger’s pitcher drafted in the seventh round

CLEMSON, S.C. – Sophomore righthander Mack Anglin (Marengo, Ohio) was selected in the seventh round (No. 205 overall) by the Kansas City Royals on the second day (rounds 3-10) of the MLB draft on Monday afternoon. He was the first Tiger drafted by the Royals since 2017 (Reed Rohlman).


Anglin was a Third-Team All-ACC starting pitcher in 2022 and won the Stowe Award as the team’s most valuable pitcher. He was 6-6 with a 4.48 ERA in 76.1 innings pitched over 15 starts. He gave up just 63 hits (.227 opponents’ batting average) with 78 strikeouts.

In his career, Anglin is a two-time All-ACC Academic selection who has a 4.64 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 139.2 innings pitched over 32 appearances (26 starts) in three seasons. His 10.57 strikeouts-per-nine-innings-pitched mark is fifth in Tiger history.

Anglin was selected in the 13th round by the Washington Nationals in 2021, but elected to return to Clemson for the 2022 season.

Tiger signee and righthander Brock Porter was drafted on Monday in the fourth round (No. 109 overall pick) by the Texas Rangers.

The third and final day of the 2022 MLB draft is Tuesday with rounds 11-20.
