Polished lefty Grundy A's 10th-round pick

Jerad Grundy rounded out the day for the A's as their 10th-round pick and the 311th overall pick of the Draft.

Oakland's selection on Friday was Grundy's fourth time being drafted. He was selected in 2012 in the 26th round by the Twins, the 46th round in 2009 by the Rangers and in the 42nd round in 2011 by the Marlins.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound lefty for Kentucky made 14 starts in 2013, owning a 6-6 record and a 4.86 ERA. Grundy worked 83 1/3 innings along the way, allowing just 20 walks and striking out 61.

"He's a polished college lefty who had a very good college career," Kubota said. "We hope he can have the same success as he did in college."
