LACETT | Dodgers draft U of L's Funkhouser

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) –It was a bittersweet night for Louisville right-handed pitcher Kyle Funkhouser.

On this same night his team was eliminated from the NCAA tournament, Funkhouser was selected by the Dodgers as the 35th overall pick in the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft.  

Funkhouser was projected as a top 15 pick in this year's draft but over the last couple weeks his stock had fallen after a couple of below average starts. 

Despite going as the 35th overall pick, the Louisville Junior is still the highest draft pick in the program's history.

Funkhouser set a program record with 13 wins in 2014. He went 8-5 this season with a 3.20 ERA.
