Yankees select pitcher Will Warren with the 243rd overall pick in the 2021 Draft

The Yankees are going all in on pitchers on the latter parts of the draft levels on Monday, selecting Will Warren out of Southeastern Louisiana University.

Warren was awarded a considerable amount of recognition in 2021: 2021 LSWA All-Louisiana (2nd Team), 2021 All-Southland First Team, 2021 Southland All-Academic (1st Team), 2021 Southland All-Conference (1st Team), 2021 Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week (May 23), 2021 Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week (April 19) as well as Southland Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.

In his career at Southeastern Louisiana, he holds a 3.56 ERA with 193 strikeouts and a 0.57 WHIP in 205.1 IP.

2021 was Warren’s longest season regarding innings pitched, but also his best considering the amount of innings. The Brandon, MS native held a 2.57 ERA in 91 IP, giving up 33 runs (26 earned) on 71 hits. Warren only gave up one home run in 2021.
