MORGANTOWN, W.Va.–After losing several pitchers in the MLB Draft in June, West Virginia landed a big transfer on Thursday when pitcher Andrew Baker announced that he was heading to the Mountain State via social media.

 

The 5-foot-10 lefty is coming to the Mountaineers from Florida. As a sophomore, he had 21 appearances on the mound with 2-0 record and 4.86 ERA over 33.1 innings. In SEC action, Baker pitched  in 7.2 innings  with nine earned runs allowed.He played in the outfield in 12 games and went 2-for-8 with eight runs scored.

In 2019, Baker was not with the Gators.

The Cleveland Indians selected Baker in the 36th round of the 2016 MLB First-Year Player Draft. Coming out of high school he was ranked the No. 4 left handed pitcher in the state of Florida by Perfect Game and the No. 13 overall player in the state.
