CLEMSON, S.C. - Junior lefthander Alex Bostic (Matthews, N.C.) was selected in the 10th round (No. 305 overall pick) of the MLB draft by the San Francisco Giants on Friday. It marked the third year in a row the Giants drafted a Tiger, as they picked lefthander Matthew Crownover (21st round) in 2014 and outfielder Steven Duggar (sixth round) in 2015.

Bostic had a 4-2 record, two saves and a 5.13 ERA in 33.1 innings pitched over 26 appearances (one start) in 2016. He also had 44 strikeouts (11.88 strikeouts per nine innings pitched) and a .210 opponents' batting average, as he gave up only four extra-base hits.

He earned the win in the ACC Championship Game against Florida State by tossing 4.0 scoreless innings of one-hit ball with eight strikeouts on May 29.

In his three-year career, he is 4-5 with two saves and a .253 opponents' batting average in 49.2 innings pitched over 49 appearances (two starts).
