Kent State pitcher Tyler Skulina (Walsh Jesuit) was selected in the fourth round of the MLB Draft.
Skulina, a junior, was selected No.108 by the Chicago Cubs. Here’s what MLB.com had to say about the 6-foot-5 right-hander:
"Skulina played a key role in Kent State’s Cinderella run to the 2012 College World Series and has taken on an even bigger role this spring as the Golden Flashes ace. He relies on his fastball-curveball combination to attack hitters and isn’t afraid to challenge them. Skulina’s fastball sits in the low-90s and runs in on right-handers. His curveball has good break and should be a Major League average offering. He uses his 6-foot-5, 235-pound frame to create a good downhill plane for both pitches. Skulina needs to develop his changeup to reach his potential."
