The Cleveland Indians today announced the selection of C LOGAN ICE with the club's Lottery Round "B" selection (72nd overall) of the 2016 First-Year Player Draft.
Ice, 21, just finished his junior year at Oregon State University, batting .310 (54-for-174) with seven home runs and 39 RBI for the season in 54 games for the Beavers. He drew a team-high 37 walks, while also posting Oregon State's highest slugging percentage (.563) and on-base percentage (.432). He ranked second on the team in both RBI and home runs.
The 5-foot-11, 191-pound catcher threw out 44 percent of base stealers last season (19-of-43) and committed just four errors on his way to being named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. Ice was also named one of three finalists for the Johnny Bench Award, which recognizes the top catcher the NCAA.
A native of Puyallup, Washington, Ice is a 2013 graduate of Rogers High School, where he received First-Team All-League honors in his final two seasons.
