Orioles take UCLA lefty reliever in seventh round

As the Orioles continue to try to stockpile talent in the later rounds after sitting out the first two, Baltimore selected Max Schuh, a pitcher from UCLA, in the seventh round of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft.

Schuh is the fifth pitcher that the O's have taken, the third lefty and the second player with two-sport experience at the collegiate level. Schuh was also a quarterback for the football team in 2010-11.

The Draft concludes on Saturday, with exclusive coverage of Rounds 11-40 beginning on MLB.com at 1 p.m. ET.

At 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, Schuh has the physical makeup of a power pitcher, but he uses three pitches effectively.

The relief pitcher logged 29 innings as a redshirt junior in 2014, and allowed just 22 hits and five earned runs for a 1.55 ERA. Schuh also struck out 34 batters and walked 10.

As a sophomore, Schuh made 12 appearances, but totaled just 2 1/3 innings, although he did not allow a run.

Schuh did not appear in any games as a member of the Bruins football team.
