19_BB_WilliamsMLB

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba pitcher Peyton Williams was selected in the 20th round of the Major League Baseball Draft on Tuesday. The sophomore was picked by the Atlanta Braves as the #607 player in this year’s draft.

Williams posted a dozen saves for Catawba this season over 31 appearances. He had a 4-1 record and a team low 2.43 ERA. Over his 37 innings, the transfer from Pfeiffer, allowed just 23 hits with 17 walks and 55 strikeouts. Opponents hit just .181 against the right-hander.

Williams becomes the 28th draft pick in school history and the 19th under Head Coach Jim Gantt. He is the second Catawba player to be selected by the Braves, following Brian Boltz, who was a second round pick in 1989. Last season (2018) was the first since 2012 that Catawba did not have a draft pick.
