GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The New York Yankees selected ECU pitcher Josh Grosz in the 11th round of the Major League Baseball Draft on Tuesday. He was taken 342 overall and is the 18th Pirate draft pick in the Cliff Godwin era.

Grosz was second-team all-conference this year starting in 16 games for ECU. He was their Sunday starter for much of the season going 4-2 with a 3.66 earned run average. He had 79 strikeouts over 76.1 innings.

There were scouts next to us to see Grosz throw at the NCAA regional so they must have liked what they saw.

Grosz pitched for both Jacksonville and Lejeune in high school prior to coming to ECU.
