JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The L.A. Dodgers selected Jacksonville University right handed pitcher Chris Anderson with the 18th overall pick in the 2013 Major League Draft.
Anderson becomes the first JU baseball player to be drafted in the first round of the MLB draft.
The junior was one of the bright spots for a Dolphins club that struggled this past season.
Although he's struggled at times this spring, Anderson made a strong impression during the first month of the season with improved velocity and more developed secondary pitches.
Since then, his stuff hasn't been as impressive as he's once again had to serve as the staff workhorse.
Anderson's stock has dipped over the course of the spring, but the right-hander's potential as a mid-rotation starter with three pitches made him a Day 1 selection.
