Former Princeton University left-hander Michael Fagan '14 was selected in the ninth round by the Oakland Athletics on the second day of the 2014 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

The 282nd overall pick, Fagan is the third Tiger pitcher in as many seasons to be selected, joining Zak Hermans (2013) and Matt Bowman (2012), who were taken by the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets in the 30th and 13th rounds, respectively.

Since 1965, 45 Princeton baseball players have been drafted, including 20 since 2000. Fagan was also selected out of high school in the 2010 draft by his hometown San Diego Padres (45th round -1354th overall), but did not sign.

Piecing together a tremendous senior season, Fagan garnered first-team All-Ivy League accolades. Tossing 58.0 innings, the lefty posted a 4-2 overall record in nine starts. Leading the conference in strikeouts (77), he issued just 18 walks while holding opponents to a .213 batting average. Going the distance in three games, Fagan surrendered just 15 earned runs.

Striking out 10 batters in a 7-3 win over Michigan on Mar. 7, he allowed just one hit while fanning eight in a 1-0 shutout victory over Navy on Mar. 22. Recording a career-high 11 strikeouts in seven innings against Brown on Apr. 5, he issued just three free passes in a 3-2 Princeton triumph. Fagan would match his personal-best with 11 K's against Penn on Apr. 20 and Cornell on Apr. 27.

Fagan was the sixth pitcher - and first left-hander - selected by the A's this season. Chosen in 1986, Drew Stratton was the only other Tiger ever drafted by Oakland.
