Becoming the second Oklahoma Sooner selected in the 2015 MLB Draft, Jacob Evans heard his named called in the 6th Round by the St. Louis Cardinals. A native of Broken Arrow, OK, Evans quickly became a dependable pitcher under the tutelage of head coach Pete Hughes.
Throughout the regular season, Evans earned a 6-1 record with a 1.67 ERA over 43 innings of work. However, the hurler showed skills at the plate as well. Against the Kansas Jayhawks, Evans crushed a walk-off home run in extra innings giving the Sooners a win. Possessing the ability to hit as a pitcher could come in handy playing under National League rules.
It appears as though the junior has already made a decision to pursue a professional career.
