It marks the second time Louisville has had multiple first-round selections in the same draft.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – June 10, 2020
For just the second time in program history, University of Louisville baseball had multiple student-athletes selected in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft on Wednesday evening.
Left-handed pitcher Reid Detmers was chosen 10th overall by the Los Angeles Angels and right-handed pitcher Bobby Miller was taken 29th by the Los Angeles Dodgers. Louisville was the only school in the country with multiple players taken in the first round.
The duo become the seventh and eighth first-round selections in Louisville history, and the first since Brendan McKay was taken fourth overall in 2017.
Louisville also had multiple first-round picks in 2016 when Corey Ray (fifth), Zack Burdi (26th) and Will Smith (32nd) were chosen in the opening round.
Detmers is the third-highest draft pick in program history following back-to-back All-American seasons with the Cardinals. The junior was 3-0 in four starts in 2020 with a 1.23 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 22 innings. Detmers closed out the season with 284 career strikeouts, ranking fourth all-time at Louisville. He is also tied for ninth all-time with 20 career victories.
Miller was 2-0 in four starts in the shortened 2020 campaign, posting a 2.31 ERA with 34 punchouts in 23.1 innings. For his three-year career, the righty holds a 15-2 mark in 41 career appearances with 175 strikeouts.
The MLB Draft continues on Thursday with rounds 2-5. The coverage begins at 5 p.m., ET, on MLB Network and ESPN2.
