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.
