Orioles pick 3B Austin Anderson from Ole Miss with ninth round pick, #241 overall

With their ninth round pick in the 2014 MLB Draft, the Orioles took Austin Anderson, a third baseman from the University of Mississippi. He is a senior, so you can probably figure he will be a standard senior sign type.

Anderson is listed at 5'11" and 190 lbs., which seems awfully short for a Stormtrooper third baseman. He bats left-handed and throws right-handed. He has batted .332/.418/.463 in 62 games played this season.

The slot value of this pick is $146,800.

To date, there has never been an Orioles ninth round pick of any note. The last one to get any big league time at all was 1994's pick, Chris Fussell. A current Orioles minor leaguer who still forever tantalizes with his potential, if he only gets command, is Parker Bridwell, who was taken in the ninth round in 2010.

Last year's ninth round pick was lefty Mitch Horacek from Dartmouth College. He has been spending this year pitching for the Delmarva Shorebirds.
