Twins Pick Up Two College Relievers

Posted Jun 7, 2006

The Twins picked up two college relievers with their 38th and 39th round selections, picking up two righty relievers. In the 38 round, they got University of Texas reliever Randy Boone, who had a nice 3.59 ERA in 22 appearances for the Longhorns in 2006. The following round, they picked up Anthony Slama from the University of San Diego, the second player selected from that school.

The Twins took a college pitcher in the 38th round, selecting Randy Boone from the University of Texas. Boone worked mostly out of the bullpen for the Longhorns during the 2006 season, and put up some nice numbers. In 22 appearances, he compiled a 3.59 earned run average, and stuck out 41 batters in 42.2 innings of work. He also started three games for the Longhorns, and was third on the team in appearances.

In the 39th round, the Twins picked up University of San Diego right-hander Anthony Slama. Slama struggled during the 2006 season, posting an ERA over 6.00, but we have been told he has some good pitches. He appeared mostly out of the bullpen last season, appearing in a team-high 25 games, while making only two starts. He joins teammate Steven Singleton, the Twins’ 11th round pick, as two guys picked from the University of San Diego.
