With their 10th round selection (#307 overall) in the 2018 MLB Draft, the New York Yankees selected LHP Josh Maciejewski. He is a senior at UNC-Charlotte. Maciejewski was never previously drafted.
Maciejewski has a high-80s fastball, a changeup, and a slider.
Maciejewski went 9-2 with an ERA of 2.25 in his senior season playing for the 49ers, earning him First Team All-Conference USA honors.
According to UNC-Charlotte’s athletic page:
“Set Charlotte all-time record for most starts in a career with 55 after his complete-game, three-hit shutout of UAB in the Conference USA Tournament on May 24th … made all 15 starts on the weekend in 2018 going 9-2 with a 2.25 ERA … threw 104 innings with 104 strikeouts allowing just 31 runs, 26 earned averaging nine strikeouts per game and a 4/1 strikeout-to-walk ratio… put up career best numbers in all major categories during his final season including wins, ERA, innings pitches, runs/earned runs, strikeouts and opponents batting average (.215) … in addition to earning the top spot all-time for career starts, the left-hander finished fifth with 330.1 career innings pitched, sixth all-time with 264 strikeouts and tied for sixth with 21 career wins.”
This is yet another college senior pitcher that the Yankees picked on Day 2, grouping him with Frank German, Rodney Hutchison, Daniel Bies, Connor Van Hoose, and Mick Vorhoff. Maciejewski though, is the only southpaw from the bunch.
