7/13/21 : Phillies 19th Round Draft Pick
The Phillies selected Seth Halvorsen , a 21 year old RHP from the University of Missouri in the 19th round of the draft today.
Here’s a bit about him. He’s from Plymouth, Minnesota
He’s planning a transfer to the University of Tennessee if he doesn’t sign with the Phillies.
“I wanted to go somewhere I could develop into a more consistent pitcher and also go somewhere I could help a team win and head to Omaha. Tennessee’s culture is really exciting. The players and the coaches, just all around. Guys want to be there, guys want to play, guys want to win.”
Halvorsen just finished his third year at Missouri. As the Tigers’ top arm this past season, the right-hander compiled a record of 4-2 and ERA of 6.00 in 14 starts. He had 70 strikeouts in 72.0 innings.
This season was his first full season pitching for Mizzou. As a true freshman in 2019, he gave up just two earned runs and a hit in 5.1 innings before being shutdown for the season due to injury and taking a medical redshirt.
