Kent State right-hander Taylor Williams goes to Brewers

By Ron Ledgard Published: June 7, 2013

Kent State's Taylor Williams, a junior right-hander, was selected No. 122 overall by the Milwaukee Brewers. Here’s his MLB.com bio:

"Williams began his college career at Washington State, but played sparingly as a freshman in 2011 before transferring to Mount Hood Community College in Oregon. He transferred to Kent State this year and has become the Golden Flashes' top starter. Williams, a right-hander, grabbed attention in February when he struck out Kris Bryant three times in a Kent State victory. He mixes his low-90s fastball effectively with a slider and changeup. Williams' delivery has some effort to it, though he is athletic enough to largely compensate for it. Still, his delivery and short stature (he's listed at 5-foot-11) will likely make him a reliever as a professional."
