Four Raider athletes taken in MLB Draft

Seminole State's 2011 Raider baseball team

Three pitchers and an infielder have been selected out of Seminole State College in the 2011 Major League Baseball (MLB) First-year Player Draft.

  • Right-hander Michael Clevinger, a sophomore from Jacksonville, was drafted in the fourth round by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The former Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) Pitcher of the Week was the 135th pick overall.
  • Right-hander Dejai Oliver, a sophomore from Orlando, was drafted in the eighth round by the Florida Marlins. The Mid-Florida Conference (MFC) All-Conference athlete was the 253rd pick overall.
  • Second baseman Todd Hankins, a sophomore from Oviedo, was drafted in the 15th round by the Cleveland Indians. The MFC Player of the Year and National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) All-American Honorable Mention was the 458th pick overall.
  • Right-hander Garrett Bush, a sophomore from Jacksonville, was selected in the 19th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was the 584th pick overall.

The 2011 MLB Draft took place June 6-8. More than 1,500 players were selected in the 50-round draft, including 122 from NJCAA schools.

Meanwhile, Seminole State alumnus Dee Gordon, a fourth-round pick in 2008, made his Major League debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 6, scoring the Dodgers' only run in a 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. He made his first start for the team on June 7, hitting 3-for-5 and recording a stolen base against the Phillies in a 6-2 Dodgers win.

Gordon is the son of former MLB pitcher Tom Gordon.
