I assume you mean UVA instead of USA. I agree that with the stud...

pitchers we've had here over the past 15 years, it's a bit surprising we haven't had more success in the big leagues. I have no idea why. It would be interesting to find the number of pitchers we've had drafted in the top 5 rounds during BOC's tenure, but it's more than a few. Here are just the first round guys:

Sean Doolittle, 1B/LHP, Oakland Athletics, 2007
Danny Hultzen, LHP, Seattle Mariners, 2011
Nick Howard, RHP, Cincinnati Reds, 2014
Nathan Kirby, LHP, Milwaukee Brewers, 2015
Daniel Lynch, LHP, Kansas City Royals, 2018

Here are the first team All American pitchers:

2007: Jacob Thompson, RHP (ABCA, BA, CB)
2010: Kevin Arico, RHP (NCBWA, CB)
2010: Danny Hultzen, LHP (ABCA, CB, NCBWA)
2011: Danny Hultzen, UTIL (BA, CB), LHP (ABCA)
2014: Nathan Kirby, LHP (ABCA, BA, CB)
2016: Connor Jones, RHP (ABCA)
