Indiana reliever Jake Kelzer was taken in the 22nd round of the Major League Baseball Draft by the New York Yankees. Kelzer is just a redshirt freshman, but he is old for his grade and will be 21 at the end of the month, which makes him eligible for the draft.
The 6-foot-7, 235-pound right hander finished 1-3 this season with a 3.13 earned run average and 44 strikeouts in 31 1/3 innings. Kelzer’s ERA was under 2.20 until a rough outing in the NCAA regional in which he gave up four runs in just 2/3 of an inning, including the regional-changing three-run home run by Stanford designated hitter Wayne Taylor. Before that hit, he had not been charged with a run since March 26.
Kelzer has significant leverage as a redshirt freshman, so it is difficult to predict how much he will be offered in a signing bonus. He is the fifth Indiana player taken in this draft, but is the only one who is likely at all to return to the program.
