O's get quite a catch with Wynns to close Day 2

To conclude Day 2 of the Draft, the Orioles used their 10th-round pick to select Fresno State catcher Austin Wynns.

Wynns, a senior, grew up in Poway, Calif., and attended Poway High School.

The 6-foot-2 backstop made the Western Athletic Conference All-Tournament Team in 2012. He also earned Academic All-WAC that year.

In high school, he won the California Interscholastic Federation championship in 2008 and '09.

Wynns batted .267 this season, finishing .286 overall in his four-year career at Fresno State, including a .326 batting average as a sophomore.

In 567 collegiate at-bats, Wynns had 40 doubles, two triples and five home runs.
