Padres Select Kent State RHP Robert Sabo in 44th Round of 2010 MLB Draft

By Editorial Staff

The Padres sure seemed to love fourth-year college players in the late rounds of their 2010 draft, and they grabbed yet another, Kent State righty Robert Sabo, in Round 44.

Sabo is actually a redshirt junior who redshirted due to a labrum injury a couple of years ago.

He rebounded to be Kent State’s best starter this year, posting a 4.65 ERA and 79/39 K/BB ratio in 93 innings.

Sabo is notable for only allowing three home runs all season in those 93 innings, a tremendous ratio.

Another guy who gets by on command and guile, he’s not going to overpower people, and needs to keep the ball down to succeed. Due to his lack of power stuff, he is a good candidate to move to the bullpen in pro ball.
