BREAKING: Sam Kessler taken in the 2019 MLB Draft



For the seventh time in the 2019 MLB Draft, a Mountaineer player has been selected. This time, it’s closer Sam Kessler, who was picked by the Detroit Tigers in the 34th round.

Kessler has been a lock down reliever throughout his collegiate career posting a 3.19 ERA in 2019 including 8 saves and a 46:11 strikeout to walk ratio.

Kessler still has one more year of eligibility remaining and is likely to return to West Virginia to improve his draft stock.

Stay tuned to DubVNation for the status of Kessler’s decision.
