Oklahoma Sooners Baseball | LHP Jacob Evans Selected By St. Louis Cardinals

Rich DeCray

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.
