Smith selection ties Draft record for Halos
ANAHEIM -- When the Angels selected left-handed pitcher Nate Smith in the eighth round of the First-Year Player Draft on Friday, they tied a club record set in 1999.
The Angels used their first seven picks on pitchers -- five righties and two lefties.
Smith just finished up his senior season at Furman with a 3.59 ERA in 100 1/3 innings of work.
Smith was named the Southern Conference's Pitcher of the Week on March 12 after he allowed just one run in 7 2/3 innings of work against Appalachian State.
