Phillies close out Day 2 selecting Prosinski

The Phillies selected right-handed pitcher Jon Prosinski out of Seton Hall University in New Jersey. He was Philadelphia's final selection, 301st overall, on Day 2 of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft.

Prosinski is clearly ready to begin the next chapter of his baseball life. "I have the best support system anyone could ask for. Too many people to thank and I'm beyond excited to be part of the Phillies organization," he tweeted Friday night.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound senior was named to the All Big East first team for the second straight season and was voted the New Jersey Collegiate Baseball Association Pitcher of the Year. This season he was 7-4 with a 2.58 earned run average while allowing 91 hits in 108 innings.

One of the best pitchers in Seton Hall history, he holds the school career record for starts (57), innings pitched (372 2/3) and is second all-time in wins (26).
