Texas Tech’s Caleb Kilian Improves Draft Slot by 12 Rounds in 2019
Joining Orlando Garcia in the San Francisco Giants organization, Caleb Kilian is the 3rd Red Raider off the board in the 2019 MLB Draft as an 8th round selection and 236th overall.
Kilian was drafted in the 20th round last season as a draft eligible sophomore, but chose to return to Texas Tech where he anchored the Red Raiders rotation. He was 23-6 as a Red Raider and held a 3.58 ERA. Kilian shined in Big 12 play, never losing a regular season start in two seasons as a starter in Big 12 play.
The junior's best game as a Red Raider came this April when he had a complete game shutout, striking out nine Mountaineers and only allowed two hits.
