The Detroit Tigers have drafted UC Riverside starting pitcher Austin Sodders (Canyon Springs HS) in the 7th round of the Major League Baseball Draft; 205th overall.

Sodders made 14 starts for the Highlanders and posted a mark of  7-4 with a 2.57 ERA.

The Pirates drafted Sodders in the 17th round last year coming out of Riverside City College, but he elected to attend UCR and ultimately improved his draft stock by 10 rounds this year.
