SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Five more Toreros have been drafted by Major League Baseball, as the University of San Diego's junior infielder Andrew Daniel was taken in the 11th round by the Los Angeles Angels, while senor left-handed pitcher Max MacNabb was selected in the 18th round by the San Diego Padres. The third Torero taken today was junior right-hander Lucas Long in the 24th round by the Baltimore Orioles, while senior RHP/INF Josh Goossen-Brown was taken in the 31st round by the Chicago White Sox. Rounding things of on the final day of the draft, junior RHP Brandon Show was drafted in the 38th round by the Boston Red Sox.
Daniel, a first-team All-WCC honoree, led the team with a .369 overall batting average and was second in slugging percentage (.554), on-base percentage (.421), and doubles (20). Daniel, who was a Freshman All-American in 2012, set career-highs in nearly every offensive category while starting in 52 of the Toreros' 54 games.
MacNabb, a four-year member of the Toreros, finished his senior season with a 2-1 record, and a 3.15 ERA in 25 appearances. For his career, MacNabb posted an 11-7 overall record, with 4.55 ERA and he racked up 103 strikeouts over four years as a left-handed specialist out of the pen.
Long, a 6-0 RHP from Minneapolis, Minn., had a great season for the Toreros in his only stint with the program. Long earned his way into the weekend rotation, and from there, he simply shined. Long posted a 4-3 record with a dazzling 2.41 ERA in 20 appearances and eight starts. He tossed a total of 71.0 innings, while recording 62 strikeouts, and only issuing 20 walks.
Goosen-Brown, a fifth-year senior transfer from Cal State Northridge, made an immediate impact on the Toreros as a two-way star. With this bat, he hit .314 with 55 hits, 10 doubles, two triples, four home runs and had 27 RBI. On the mound, he moved into the closer role for the Toreros, as he posted an overall record of 3-2 with a team-leading six saves, while bolstering a 1.55 ERA in 29.0 innings of work.
Show, a 6-2 RHP from Las Vegas, Nev., played this lone season for the Toreros in 2014. He made a total of 17 appearances, while posting a 1-0 record in 26.2 innings of work. He posted a total of 29 strikeouts, while issuing 21 walks this past season.
