LSU pitcher Eric Reyzelman is headed to the Bronx at pick No. 160

·1 min read

One of the best closers in college baseball goes off the board in the fifth round at No. 160 to the prestigious New York Yankees. What a great fit this is for Eric Reyzelman as he goes from one pinstripe team to another.

Last season at LSU, he finished 1-3 with a 4.04 ERA with 66 strikeouts and 18 walks in 42 innings pitched over 29 games. When Reyzelman was on, everyone was getting struck out by his fastball and looking crazy on his off-speed stuff, but there were times when he wasn’t having a great day and got knocked around a little bit — as is the life of a pitcher.

Reyzelman is the third LSU player to be picked in the draft after Jacob Berry (first round) and Cade Doughty (second round). Assuming he signs with the Yankees, he’ll be heading to the minors with the hopes of eventually reaching the New York bullpen.
