The El Segundo alum made just nine appearances for the Trojans in 2014 but posted a 2.81 ERA. In 16 innings, he struck out 14. Nootbaar is the first Trojan to be selected by the Orioles since Damon Buford in 1990.
UC Santa Barbara 3B Joey Epperson; Padres (13th Round, 387th overall)
Epperson played third, first and the outfield for the Gauchos. He led the team with a .376 batting average and a .508 slugging percentage. He was a 2nd Team All-Big West selection as an outfielder.
UCLA P David Berg; Rangers (17th Round, 516th overall)
The Pac-12's Pitcher of the Year for 2013 set an NCAA record with 24 saves while guiding the Bruins to an NCAA championship. His 17 postseason appearances and six postseason saves are the most in school history. He completed his career with a 15-5 record and a 1.26 ERA.
Cal Poly 3B Jimmy Allen; Dodgers (24th Round, 729th overall)
In a conference that boasts some of the top third basemen in the country, Allen was a 2nd Team selection in the Big West. He started all 59 games that he played, hit .298 and was tied for the team lead with six home runs in 2014.
USC LHP Bobby Wheatley; Blue Jays (26th Round, 774th overall)
The former Orange Lutheran quarterback started 13 games for the Trojans in 2014. He posted a 4.32 ERA in 58.1 innings. As a junior in 2013, Wheatley posted a career-best 2.78 ERA.
Kaiser HS RHP Chris Mathewson; Rangers (28th Round, 846th overall)
The righty's numbers for Kaiser were impressive. He went 9-2 as a senior with a 0.79 ERA. The Long Beach State signee struck out 105 batters and walked just five.
Cal State Dominguez Hills RHP Nick Wagner; Angels (31st Round, 929th overall)
Cal State Dominguez head coach Murphy Su'a said Wagner has the type of velocity on his fastball and action on his offspeed pitches that can move him through the minors "quickly." Wagner was one of three Toros selected joining teammates Bubby Rossman and Brennan Bernardino, who were taken by the Dodgers and Reds, respectively. Wagner, a Santa Margarita grad, began his collegiate career at Oregon.
Chapman has tremendous speed -- the type of speed that could steal home, which he did in the Cavs 2013 CIF Southern Section title win at Dodger Stadium. He hit .358 as senior with four home runs. Not bad for a player who admitted baseball wasn't on his "list of things to do" as a freshman. Four years later, he's drafted by the A's and has signed with San Diego State.
UCI P Sam Moore; Dodgers (40th Round, 1,209th overall)
Moore wasn't slated to be the team's closer at the start of the season but when his number was called he made the most of it. Moore has 23 saves on the season, one shy of the NCAA record, and 1.88 ERA for the Anteaters who will be heading to Omaha for the College World Series.
