    In the 32nd round, the Reds selected shortstop Shane Carlson from UC Santa Barbara. Isn't that where Matt Valaika came from?

    Re: Official MLB draft thread (day three)

    A story from the Duluth paper:

    Adian Kummet of St. Scholastica was busy pitching in front of Kansas City Royals scouts and front office personnel on June 4 at Kauffman Stadium when Saints assistant coach Joe Wicklund snuck a peak at the radar gun.

    Wicklund liked what he saw as Kummet’s fastball consistently hit 90 or

    91 mph.

    Kummet hopes he made enough of an impression in Kansas City — and in his four-year career at St. Scholastica — to be taken in the Major League Baseball draft today through Thursday in New York.

    “This is something you dream about ever since you start playing, so to be in this position is pretty sweet,” Kummet said. “It’s the culmination of everything I’ve worked for. I feel like I’ve put myself in the best position possible, and now, it’s all out of my hands and I just have to wait and see.”

    Kummet, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound right-hander from Brainerd, Minn., feels he has a good chance at being taken on the draft’s final day, when rounds 31 through 50 are completed. He said the Royals, Oakland Athletics and Cincinnati Reds have shown the most interest, although representatives of more than 15 MLB teams saw him pitch this spring.

    Kummet didn’t disappoint. He always had the ability to dominate at the NCAA Division III level, but his role changed during his four years at St. Scholastica. Kummet was used primarily as a closer his first two years before moving into a starter’s role as a junior, going 8-2 with a 2.68 ERA. He was even better this year as he learned to pace himself.

    “I think the biggest change was knowing that I didn’t have to go out there and use everything all at once. My team needed me to be able to pitch into the seventh or eighth inning,” Kummet said. “I also think that in the back of my mind, I knew this was my last hurrah, and that made every outing, every pitch, that much more meaningful.”

    Kummet finished his senior year 6-2 with a 1.87 ERA and three saves. He pitched in the Saints’ biggest games and no-hit eventual national champion St. Thomas for six innings in the regional playoffs. Wicklund said if Kummet doesn’t sign with an MLB-affiliated team, he already has offers to play independent baseball.

    “Adian will be paid to play baseball somewhere this summer, it’s just a matter of where and who,” Wicklund said. “I got to see him pitch in Kansas City, and it was only 25 pitches, but Adian was phenomenal. He just looked like a professional baseball player down there.”

    Prospects got to use the visitor’s clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium, and the pitchers warmed up in the bullpen before taking the actual mound to show their stuff.

    “Just being in a big-league stadium and seeing that clubhouse, I could get used to that life pretty easily,” Kummet said, laughing.

    If he is drafted, Kummet would become only the second Saints player ever selected, joining Brett Nyquist, who the Montreal Expos took in the 13th round in 2002. Kummet, a double major in accounting and finance, graduated last month with a 3.5 grade-point average but said a desk job could wait.

    “As long as we can put the accou
    nting degree on hold for a little bit,” Kummet said, “that would be alright with me.”
