Jim Callis of MLB.com reports that Illinois starter Cody Sedlock signed with the Baltimore Orioles today.  As a result of his first round selection, He’ll receive a nice sum of almost 2.1 million. 

 

Here are highlights from FightingIllini.com.  By the way, Sedlock is adding another award to his resume this week.  He was named to the ABCA/Rawlings Mideast All-Region first team

Sedlock was among four Illini who were drafted in the MLB Draft last week.  I was a little surprised redshirt junior shortstop Adam Walton was not chosen.  However, the next day, he was signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks as a free agent

Walton was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in 2015 after his First Team All-Big Ten selection.  That year, he hit .289 with 25 multi-hit games and 50 run scored. He also ranked second the Big Ten in assists and double plays.  Walton ends his career with a .280 average and 151 games started. 

Congrats, Cody and Adam!

  1. Great for Adam! And, for Cody, too!

    Any idea where the current team members are playing over the summer? The season ends the beginning of August.
