Ex-AppleSox 19th pick in MLB draft
Marco Gonzales who played for Wenatchee in 2010 was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the first round of yesterday’s Major League draft. Gonzales, from Fort Collins, Colorado, came to the AppleSox right out of high school. After the summer here he has been attending Gonzaga University the past three years. From the Gonzaga website, “Gonzales is coming off a spectacular year for the Zags that earned him Co-West Coast Conference Player of the Year accolades. As one of the finest two-way players in the nation, the southpaw was masterful on the mound with a 7-3 record and a 2.80 ERA with two shutouts. At the dish, the left-handed hitter led the Zags with a .311 batting average, two homeruns and 26 RBI in 46 starts. In his three seasons in a Zags uniform, Gonzales is 26-7 with a 2.34 ERA, nine complete games, four shutouts and 278 strikeouts. He is a career .311 hitter with four homeruns and 69 RBI. Gonzales is in the top five of the Bulldogs record book in wins, strikeouts and ERA.”
Prior to Gonzales the highest drafted former AppleSox was Clayton Mortensen. Mortensen was taken 36th, and also by St. Louis...and he also attended Gonzaga. He now pitches for the Boston Red Sox.
