Congrats.  He was having a great season.   37 K's in 19 innings.  Mid 90's fastball with a nasty curve ball.  Sucks that he is in a Phillie jersey though

Ragsdale Selected by Philadelphia in the Fourth Round of the 2020 MLB Draft

Carson Ragsdale became the ninth Bull to be picked within the first four rounds of the MLB Draft

 

TAMPA, JUNE 11, 2020 – USF redshirt junior pitcher Carson Ragsdale was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the fourth round of the 2020 MLB Draft on Thursday evening.

 

Ragsdale (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) became the ninth Bull to be picked within the first four rounds of the MLB Draft and he's the program's 19th overall selection since 2015. USF has had at least one player taken in the MLB Draft in each of the past 21 seasons.

 

"I couldn't be happier for Carson. He is the definition of what a student-athlete should aspire to be. He is an outstanding student, active member in SAAC, and one heck of a baseball player," head coach Billy Mohl said. "Most importantly, Carson is a high character individual who makes everyone around him better. Myself, the coaching staff, and his teammates will all miss him greatly, and we will be following his career moving forward."

 

After missing the 2019 season due to Tommy John surgery, Ragsdale kicked off the 2020 campaign with dominance before the season cut short because of COVID-19. The right-hander led USF's starting rotation with a 2.84 ERA and the Bulls' entire pitching staff with 37 strikeouts. The American Athletic Conference Weekly Honor Roll member ranked second in the conference in strikeouts and batters struck out looking (11).

 

Ragsdale collected a career-high 10 strikeouts in standout performances against No.1 Florida and Marist in 2020. He allowed only one hit through six innings of work during his win against Marist and allowed only two hits at top-ranked Florida through four innings.

 

The spring 2020 graduate finished his USF career with 77 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.75 through 50.1 innings of work. During the 2018 season, he took part in the program's first combined no-hitter at Army. In 2017, Ragsdale helped USF's staff lead the nation with 10.1 punchouts per nine innings and set a school strikeout record with 620.

 

Ragsdale increased USF's total to 127 MLB Draft picks since 1975. He became the first Bull taken in the top four rounds since Shane McClanahan was selected with the 31st overall pick by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2018.

50 total innings in college? I wonder if they're going to put him right back into the bullpen.

Around 32% chance of making it to the majors. He will get his looks and opportunities...good luck to the young man.

He may get a look at starting, but probably end up back in the pen

Why does USF Baseball under-perform year after year?
