The Padres draft Alonso alum Thomas Dorminy, who played at Faulkner University in Alabama this season.

Peter Miller was the first local taken in the 2014 MLB first-year player draft, going in the ninth round on Day 2. Area players were shut out on Day 1 for the first time since 2010.

RHP Peter Miller, Florida State (9th, 261, Mariners): Miller, who played at Cambridge Christian, recently finished his senior season with the Seminoles. He was 3-4 with a 5.14 ERA. He appeared in 17 games and started seven. In 42 innings pitched, he recorded 53 strikeouts and 31 walks.

Miller, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound right-hander, finished his senior season with the Lancers with a 0.89 ERA and 6-0 record, striking out 65 in 39.1 innings pitched. In 2010 he was on the Tampa Bay Times' all-Hillsborough County first team and was the fifth winner of the Wade Boggs Achievement Award, given annually to a standout senior baseball player in Hillsborough County.

Seattle selected six pitchers — three right-handers — before using its 10th pick on Miller.

LHP Thomas Dorminy, Faulkner University (10th, 297, Padres): The former Alonso pitcher and 2009 Times' all-Suncoast Pitcher of the Year finished his junior year at Faulkner University with a 3.22 ERA and 11-3 record, striking out 121 in 109 innings pitched.

Dorminy, who helped Alonso win a 6A state championship, was a USF commit at one time, but went the junior college route instead, with stints at Hillsborough Community College and Lurleen B. Wallace in Andalusia, Ala., before Faulkner.

As an Alonso senior, Dorminy went 7-4 with a 2.33 ERA, striking out 72 in 57 innings. He also had a .326 batting average, three home runs and 30 RBIs.

    Will he? Won't he? It appears the Bucs' uncertainty over whether quarterback Jameis Winston can play through a shoulder injury Sunday at Buffalo will carry up until the final hours before kickoff.
