Two More Bruins Drafted on Final Day of 2014 MLB Draft
By: UCLA Athletics

Right-handed pitchers Jake Ehret and David Berg were both selected on the final day of the 2014 MLB Draft, being taken by the Cincinnati Reds in the 14th round and the Texas Rangers in the 17th round respectively. Ehret was chosen No. 425 overall and Berg was taken No. 516 overall. Their selections give the Bruins a total of four players drafted in this year's draft, as Shane Zeile (Detroit Tigers - 5th round) and Max Schuh (Baltimore Orioles - 7th round) were taken on day two of the draft.

Ehret, a native of San Dimas, Calif., made 23 appearances in relief in 2014 while serving primarily as a late-inning setup man. He went 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in 20 innings pitched, striking out 15 batters as well. Ehret is the fourth UCLA player drafted by the Reds in the last three seasons, joining former teammates Jeff Gelalich (2012 supplemental first round selection), Beau Amaral (2012 eighth round selection) and Zack Weiss (2013 sixth round selection).

Berg, who hails from Covina, Calif., has enjoyed as fine a career as any reliever in the history of college baseball, making a school record 132 career appearances while recording a UCLA record 36 saves. He also owns the NCAA single-season record for saves with 24 in 2013 and tied the NCAA record for most appearances in a season with 51 last year. The 2013 Pac-12 Pitcher of the Year and 2013 consensus first-team All-American, Berg is the only pitcher in UCLA history to lead the conference in ERA in back-to-back seasons and this season led the Bruins with a 1.50 ERA and 11 saves in 31 relief appearances. In addition, he posted a 3-2 record with 35 strikeouts in 48 innings pitched. Finally, Berg has been named to the All-Pac-12 team three times, joining Garrett Atkins (1998-2000), Trevor Bauer (2009-11), Dennis Delany (1976-78) and Adam Plutko (2011-13) as the only UCLA players to earn All-Conference acclaim in three straight years. 

UCLA had one other signee get selected in the final day of the draft, as right-handed pitcher Griffin Canning (Coto de Caza, Calif./Santa Margarita HS) was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 38th round (No. 1,133 overall).

In 10 seasons as UCLA's head coach, John Savage has now produced 69 MLB Draft selections, including 25 players being drafted within the first 10 rounds.
