Cubs Take Lefty Pitcher At #41

imagesIn the second round on Thursday’s draft, the Cubs selected left-handed pitcher Robert Zastryzny from the University of Missouri.

Zastryzny, 21, posted a 3.38 ERA (34 ER/90.2 IP) with three complete games, one shutout and a 2-9 record for Missouri in his junior year this season. He struck out 82 in 90.2 innings compared to just 24 walks in his 13 starts, holding opponents to a .266 batting average. In his 2012 sophomore campaign, he struck out 76 batters compared to just 31 walks while compiling a 5-5 record.

His 228 career strikeouts in three seasons at Missouri rank tied for eighth-most in school history. The 6-foot, 3-inch, 193-pound Zastryzny was raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, and was 17-1 with a 0.20 ERA and 198 strikeouts in his senior season for Calallen High School.
