Congratulations to Seth Corry for his selection by the San Francisco Giants in the 3rd round of the 2017 MLB Draft. The Bat Cats may have just lost a big arm.

Seth Corry is the top commit to Mike Littlewood’s BYU baseball program for the 2017 class.

Corry is a big, 6-foot-2 195 lbs left handed pitcher with a heavy fastball and an easy delivery. His best pitch is his curveball that he locates where he wants. He also has a good feel for his changeup. Corry, who attended Lone Peak High School in Alpine, Utah, fires with a wicked cross body release which gives batters difficult angles to pick up on what pitch is coming. The deception of his delivery was evident during this past season. Seth Corry struck out 97 batters in 52 innings of work.

For his stellar performances, Corry was awarded as the Deseret News’ Mr. Baseball and Gatorade Utah Player of the Year.

Here’s a look a Seth Corry’s draft profile on MLB.com:

Corry has indicated that he is still weighing his decision to go pro or to play at BYU. Corry would likely immediately enter the Cougar starting pitching rotations as a Freshman. However, Corry would need to turn down his guaranteed $558,500 to play at Larry H. Miller Field in 2018.

Corry marks the 4th straight season where BYU baseball has landed Utah’s Mr. Baseball — the previous three were Colton Shaver, Easton Walker, Payton Henry. This is the 2nd straight season a BYU baseball commit was been selected in the first 10 rounds of the MLB Draft. Payton Henry was taken in the 6th round by the Milwaukee Brewers last year.
