Rangers sign fourth-round pick
The Rangers announced on Thursday they signed their fourth-round pick, Andrew Doyle from the University of Oklahoma. Doyle was the Sooners’ Friday night starter, a role reserved for the best pitcher on the college staff. He led Oklahoma in innings pitched the last two seasons.
This year, Doyle posted 92 innings, which ranked him seventh in the Big 12.
He was drafted in the 39th round of the 2006 First-Year Player Draft by the Nationals. Doyle’s four-seam fastball sits around 95 mph, and he also throws a two-seamer that sinks, a good slider and a changeup.
He is 6-3 and weighs 210 pounds.
