A.J. Puk chosen sixth overall by Oakland A's
Florida Gators left-hander A.J. Puk has been chosen by the A's with the No. 6 overall pick in Thursday evening's MLB amateur draft.
The 6-foot-7 Iowa native was viewed by some pundits as the potential top pick. Puk is 2-3 for the Gators with a 3.21 ERA. He has issued 31 walks with 95 strikeouts in 70 innings.
Puk's Gators host Florida State this weekend in the NCAA's super regionals.
