Another year, another IU alumnus heading to the White Sox organization. On Wednesday the Southsiders selected senior right-hander Pauly Milto in the 23rd round of the MLB Draft.

Milto is the third and final member of the IU starting rotation to be drafted this year, following Andrew Saalfrank and Tanner Gordon who were both picked in the sixth round on Tuesday.

The senior has been a stalwart for the Hoosiers over the last three seasons after entering the rotation as a sophomore. He ended his college career with a 26-12 record and a 3.37 earned run average. He made 41 starts for the Hoosiers and pitched over 291 innings, striking out 258 batters in the process.

As a senior Milto produced some memorable moments such as a batting practice home run at T-Mobile Park, countless dugout shenanigans or a masterful performance against Washington in Seattle in which he threw eight one-hit innings to get a big early season win for the Hoosiers.

As a now graduated senior, Milto will begin his career in the White Sox organization. He’ll join former IU sluggers Craig Dedelow and Logan Sowers as well as former classmate and fellow rotation member Jonathan Stiever.
