Rays take college pitcher in Round 4

The Rays picked Texas A&M LHP David Newmann in the fourth round, adding to their stockpile of hurlers.

Newmann, like the Rays second round pick (Ole Miss RHP Will Kline) has underwent Tommy John Surgery. Newman's came in his sophomore year at San Jacinto Community College in Houston (2005). That was a year after he led San Jacinto to a runner-up finish in the JUCO World Series in 2004.

It's his second time being drafted (he was 24th rounder by Cleveland in 2004).

This season, Newmann went 11-1 with a 2.98 ERA for the Aggies.
