Harvey, Rohrbaugh Drafted

Clemson pitcher/DH selected in the second round by the Florida Marlins.

Clemson DH/pitcher Kris Harvey was selected in the second round of the Major League Baseball draft by the Florida Marlins on Tuesday.

Harvey, who has excelled as both a hitter and a pitcher at Clemson, was selected as the No. 64 overall player in the 2005 MLB Draft.

A junior this season, Harvey is hitting .342 with 24 homeruns and 69 RBI.

On the mound, Harvey is 5-4 with a 5.52 ERA. He has pitched a total of 62 innings, striking out 52 batters while walking 28.

Last year as sophomore, Harvey hit .335 with eight homers and 41 RBI. On the mound he was a perfect 6-0 with an ERA of 5.40.

When asked if he was going to return for his senior year at Clemson on Sunday after the Tigers' win over Oral Roberts to clinch the Clemson Regional, Harvey responded "We'll see."

Clemson junior lefthander Robert Rohrbaugh (Littlestown, PA) was also drafted Tuesday.

He was taken by the Seattle Mariners in the seventh round (203rd overall pick).

Rohrbaugh is 8-2 with a 4.08 ERA in 90.1 innings pitched in 2005. Rohrbaugh was second in the ACC in conference wins (6), trailing only Miami's Cesar Carrillo (8). He has 79 strikeouts and has allowed just two wild pitches all season. Rohrbaugh was also drafted out of high school by the Expos/Nationals in the 30th round in 2002.
