Jeff Ellis: In a shocking turn (insert sarcasm) the Indians take a Juco player, this time it’s a left handed pitcher named Ryan Merritt. They are also keeping with the recent trend of going off the map with the pick. He was second team all state in Texas out of high school. In high school he hit .455 and had an ERA of 0.98. In college in 88 innings he had 88 punch outs and only 12 walks with a 1.23 ERA. Thus far every step of the process Merritt has performed without any trouble. His numbers show excellent control and an ability to get batters to strike out which are not easy things to find in a lefty pitcher.
