GOLDEN, Colo. – Colorado School of Mines’ Marshall Schuler was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 37th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday, June 9th.
Schuler, a 6’0”, 170-lb. right-handed pitcher who hails from Anaheim, Calif. (Katella High School), was the 1,131st overall pick in the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
During his four-year (2007-10) collegiate career at Colorado School of Mines (NCAA Division II), Schuler pitched in 68 total games and started on the mound in 20 contests. Schuler, who had three complete games at CSM, converted 14 career saves for the Orediggers. In 154.0 innings of work, Schuler recorded 142 strikeouts.
A Second Team All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference selection following his sophomore season in 2008, Schuler was a unanimous Pre-Season All-RMAC pick prior to his junior campaign in 2009. Schuler, who majored in Economics and Business at Colorado School of Mines, served as one of the Orediggers’ team captains in 2010.
