OSU's Dylan Davis selected in the third roun

OREGON STATE junior outfielder Dylan Davis was selected in the third round, 87th overall, by the San Francisco on Friday in the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft.

Dylan Davis ended the 2014 season with a team-best 64 runs batted in, which leads the Pac-12 Conference, while batting .283 with 14 doubles and seven home runs. His 64 RBI in 2014 ranks him third for most in a season at Oregon State, while the 155 for his career is good for fourth all-time.

Davis also ranks second in OSU history with 48 doubles.

In three seasons with Oregon State, the junior is batting .294 with four triples, 15 home runs and 17 stolen bases.

It is the first time Davis has been drafted.

Davis also started five games this season on the mound but pitched only 16 innings. He has a major league fastball, in the high 90's, allowed only seven hits and posted a 1.12 ERA. Davis fanned 14 but also walked 14 in his 16 innings. He projects to the next level as an outfielder.

Davis and all underclass draftees must decide whether to sign or return to school by July 18.
