Hartford right-hander selected by Reds

The Reds' ninth-round selection (No. 275 overall) in Friday's Day 2 of the First-Year Player Draft was used to take right-handed pitcher Brian Hunter from the University of Hartford.

Listed at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, Hunter mostly started for Hartford. This season in 15 games, including 13 starts, he was 4-8 with a 4.13 ERA.

Over four seasons, Hunter struck out 182 batters -- which is second-most in school history.

Hunter's teammate in the rotation, Sean Newcomb, was the 15th overall selection in the first round by the Angels.

The Draft concludes Saturday, with exclusive coverage of Rounds 11-40 beginning on at 1 p.m. ET.
