The Arizona Diamondbacks selected RHP Ryan Burr in the 5th round.

KUSA – Former Highlands Ranch star pitcher Ryan Burr was drafted in the 5th round (136th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday where he became the first Colorado product selected in this year’s MLB Draft.

In three seasons, the Arizona State junior closer set a school record with 38 saves for the Sun Devils.  This season, Burr went 8-2 and recorded a 2.91 ERA.

This is just the beginning of a life-long dream for Burr, and the former Highlands Ranch Falcon says he’ll likely be signing with the organization by the July 15th deadline.
