A former Ball State baseball player has made four appearances in the San Diego Padres’ minor league system.
A 17th round pick in the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft, T.J. Weir has played in four games for the Arizona League Padres, the organization’s rookie-level team.
Weir has a 1-0 record with an unblemished 0.00 ERA.
The 6-foot right-hander has also been able to maintain the high strikeout rate that he showed in college. In 6.2 innings pitched, Weir has already tallied 11 strikeouts and has yet to walk a batter.
In his final season at Ball State, Weir made 15 starts, posting an 8-2 pitching mark and a 3.61 ERA, while also saving a game. He ranked ninth in Division-I baseball with 117 strikeouts.
