Former Sheldon pitcher selected by Brewers in ninth round

Former Sheldon pitcher Tyler Linehan, now at Fresno State, was taken in the ninth round of today's Major League Baseball amateur draft by the Milwaukee Brewers.

A 6-foot, 240-pound junior left-hander, Linehan was the No. 272 player selected in the second day of the three-day draft.

Blessed with a fastball in the low 90s with good cutting action, Linehan compiled a 17-16 record and struck out 171 in 179 2/3 innings during his career at Fresno State.

Linehan's best season was as a sophomore. He went 9-7 with a 3.83 ERA. He struck out 82 in 83 innings.

Linehan struggled with consistency this season moving between the rotation and the bullpen. He finished 3-7 with a 5.90 ERA.

Linehan wasn't the only imposing Fresno State player to be drafted.

Junior Aaron Judge, a 6-7, 255-pound outfielder who was born in Sacramento and graduated from Linden High near Stockton, was taken in the first round Thursday by the New York Yankees.
