4:15 P.M. UPDATE:

Peyton Culbertson, former Arkansas State University right-handed pitcher, was selected by the Miami Marlins Tuesday in the MLB Draft with the No. 238 pick in the eighth round.

Culbertson (2-5, 3.73 ERA) split time in the Red Wolves' bullpen and starting rotation during the 2018 season, when ASU went 20-32 and lost to UT-Arlington in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament play-in game.

EARLIER:

Tyler Gray, former Central Arkansas University right-handed pitcher, was selected by the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday in the MLB Draft with the No. 212 pick in the seventh round.

Gray (6-2, 3.32 ERA) was named the Southland Conference Pitcher of the Year in the 2018 season.

Gray's 248 strikeouts from 2015-2018 rank second all-time in UCA history, and his 3.04 career ERA ranks 13th.

He is the 18th player in UCA history to be drafted.
