David Clawson was selected by the Los Angeles Angels with the 1111th pick in the 37th round in the 2018 MLB Draft.

The sophomore catcher Clawson has a rocket arm and loves to gun down runners who try to steal on him. Opponent quickly quit running on Clawson once they knew about his arm.

Clawson wasn’t bad at the plate either. He hit .280 with 5 home runs and 39 RBIs in his career. Clawson was named to the All-WCC Freshman team in 2017.

This isn’t Clawson 1st experience with a MLB draft. DC Clawson was taken in the 34th round in the 2016 MLB Draft by the New York Yankees.

Clawson will now have a decision to make about his future. Should he choose to forgo his college career and start with the Angels, there is a strong chance that fans of the Brigham Bats will be able to watch Clawson this summer on the Orem Owlz.

Congrats to David Clawson on his selection to the Angels in the MLB draft.
