Washington pitcher Tyler Kane signed a contract with the Miami Marlins last week, meaning that all three Husky players chosen in last month's Major League Baseball draft have joined the professional ranks.
Kane was selected by the Marlins in the 38th round of the draft. He'd been pitching for the Wenatchee Applesox in the West Coast League (a summer collegiate league) prior to inking his contract.
Earlier this summer, the two other drafted Huskies began their pro careers. Austin Voth, the Washington Nationals' fifth-round selection, has already moved from the Gulf Coast League (rookie) to Auburn (N.Y.) in the New York-Penn League (short-season A ball). Meanwhile, Ty Afenir is playing for the New York Yankees' Gulf Coast League team in Tampa.
