RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Senior right-hander Ryan Taylor, who posted a 16-5 record with a 3.01 ERA over his two-year career at Arkansas Tech, has been selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, going in the 13th round to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Taylor is the first Tech player since Matt Johnson in 2011 to be selected, and his 13th-round selection makes him the highest picked Wonder Boy by round in the history of the MLB draft.

Taylor went 10-6 with a 2.53 ERA as a junior and 6-2 with a 3.55 ERA as a senior. In both seasons, Taylor saved his best work for the end of the season. During his junior year, Taylor picked up the win in his final appearance of the season, a 10-3 win over Southern Arkansas.
