Selected by St. Louis in the fifth round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft. Signing for $175,000 informally announced on August 9, 2011.
Hadn’t pitched for two months since Oregon State’s schedule completed, but made two end-of-season mound appearances for the Batavia Muckdogs. He tossed a total of four spotless frames on two hits, no walks and four strikeouts in his brief pro debut.
After going 12-3 with a 2.54 ERA in his junior season with Oregon State, Gaviglio was a first-team all-PAC 10 conference selection. He was also a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award and a Baseball America second-team All-American.
