Voth Goes In 5th Round

SEATTLE - Two more Washington players were taken in the 2013 Major League Baseball Draft as Tyler Kane and Ty Afenir were chosen on the third and final day Saturday.

Kane, a junior right-handed pitcher from Mill Creek, Wash., was picked by the Miami Marlins in the 38th round (1,132 overall) while Afenir, a senior shortstop from Murrieta, Calif., went in the 39th round (1,184th overall).

Kane has pitched in 77 career games as a Husky, third-most in school history. In 2013, he went 2-2 with a 4.91 ERA and five saves in 26 appearances. His best season was in 2012, when he posted a 7-2 record and a 2.19 earned run average.

Afenir spent the last three years as the UW's regular starting shortstop, starting 121 games there since transferring to Washington from Palomar College. During his three seasons, he committed just 11 errors, including only one in 124 chances during his junior season in 2012. His father, Rick, played baseball at BYU and his uncle, Troy, is a former big leaguer.

On the second day of the 2013 draft, Husky starting pitcher Austin Voth was selected in the fifth round by the Washington Nationals.
