DeNato graduates from Indiana as the school’s all-time leader in wins (37) and strikeouts (297) as well as innings pitched (369 1/3). He was an All-Big Ten selection in all four years of college and was the Big Ten Pitcher of the Year this season, also earning third-team All-America honors.

    A steal in the 19th Round. At worst DeNato is going to make for a pretty darn good middle relief pitcher.
