Dillon Moyer Selected by Los Angeles Dodgers in MLB First-Year Player Draft

by UCSD

LA JOLLA, Calif. - UC San Diego junior shortstop Dillon Moyer was selected Saturday by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 38th round of the 2013 Major League Baseball (MLB) First-Year Player Draft.

Taken with the 1144th overall pick, Moyer was one of just three Tritons to start all 50 games during the 2013 season, his first in La Jolla after spending his first two years at UC Irvine. He was tied for first on the team with 16 doubles, second in stolen bases (15), and third in runs (33), hits (57) and RBI (28). Moyer hit .298 and earned All-California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) honorable mention.

Moyer is the son of Jamie Moyer, who pitched for over 25 years in MLB for eight different clubs and was chosen to the 2003 MLB All-Star Game. He becomes the first Triton drafted since right-handed pitchers Tim Shibuya (Twins, Round 23, 718) and Guido Knudson (Tigers, Round 28, 857) in 2011. Moyer is the first UCSD position player tabbed in over a decade, since catcher/third baseman Ryan Larson (Astros, Round 38, 1151) in 2002.

Moyer was the ninth and final CCAA performer whose name was called in this year’s draft. Preceding him were Jordan Sechler (CSULA, Braves, 583), Harmen Sidhu (SSU, Rays, 608), Scott Masik (CSULA, A’s, 641), Charlie Sharrer (CSUEB, White Sox, 783), Will Anderson (CSUMB, Cardinals, 785), Carlos Avila (CSUDH, Twins, 950), Ivory Thomas (CSUDH, Twins, 1010) and Nick Parent (CSUMB, White Sox, 1083).
