MLB squads draft four Coyotes, two Weatherford College exes


Stone posted a 7-6 record with a save and a 3.62 earned-run average. He struck out 72 (fifth in the conference) and walked 42 in 82 innings pitched.

“Stone has a good fastball, plus a breaking ball at times and a feel for a changeup,” said WC pitching coach Flint Wallace. “Douglas [stands] 6-5 with a plus changeup, good slider, and is projected to throw in the low to mid-90s. Garcia has really good stuff and really good pitchability. He can throw four pitches for strikes at any point in the count.”

Garcia was 7-1 with a 3.23 ERA. He pitched 83.2 innings (third in conference), struck out 66 (tied for sixth) and walked 25. Garcia and Stone tied for fifth in the conference in victories.

Douglas (2-3) posted a 4.50 ERA with 43 strikeouts and 40 walks in 68 innings.

“The pitching in our conference is really strong. I believe there were seven pitchers drafted,” said Wallace. “All three of the pitchers from WC are quality pitchers.

“If they all can stay healthy and progress as projected, we could be watching them all on TV one day.”

Jensen helped OKCU to a 49-13 record and a berth in the NAIA Championships. He tied for the team lead in home runs (11), triples (4) and RBIs (51), while batting .332 with 16 doubles.

Easley, also a former Weatherford High School student-athlete, has been one of the top pitchers for North Carolina State this season, helping the Wolfpack (49-14) to their first College World Series berth since 1968. He is 7-2 with a 1.44 ERA, a save, 39 strikeouts and 13 walks in 43.2 innings.

Editor’s Note: Josh Easley and the Wolfpack will begin its College World Series run on Sunday, facing in-state rival North Carolina at 2 p.m., CDT. The game will be televised on ESPN2. With the first two games to be played Saturday, the 8-team, double elimination format tournament will last through June 25 (or June 26, if necessary).
