WINTER PARK, Fla. (June 6, 2018) – Rollins junior pitcher Brad Case was selected by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 17th round of the 2018 MLB Amateur Draft on Wednesday. 

Since the first draft in 1965, Case is the 48th Rollins player to have his named called. The Pelham, New York native is the 19th Tar pitcher drafted and the first since Tim Griffin was selected in the 28th round of the 2010 draft. 

Case is the Tars highest pick (No. 504) since Rob Stanton went to the Cleveland Indians in the eighth round of the 1996 draft. John Goetz (1975) and Clay Bellinger (1989) are the Tars highest-ever draft picks, both going in the second round. 

Last season, catcher Chris Corbett was selected by the San Francisco Giants in the 18th round of the draft. 

Case is 13-15 in 38 starts for the Tars over the past three years. In 236 innings, he has a career 4.19 ERA with 222 strikeouts to just 60 walks. This past season he went 5-6 with a 3.46 ERA, rolling up 74 strikeouts in 96.1 innings.
