Junior pitcher to give up final college season
Texas Tech pitcher Chris Sadberry has agreed to terms with the Miami Marlins, the team that drafted him in the sixth round, according to an announcement Sunday by Tech.
Sadberry, a junior during the 2014 season, will give up his final year of college eligibility. He will report Monday to the Marlins’ spring-training facility in Jupiter, Florida, according to Tech.
Sadberry, a lefthander, went 5-3 with a 3.03 earned-run average this season. He made 17 starts, the most by a Tech pitcher since 2006, and threw a team-high 95 innings. He walked 25 and struck out 65.
