Rays close Day 2 with college righty Wallace

Bradley Wallace, a right-hander from Arkansas State, was the Rays' 10-round selection -- and their final selection Friday -- as the second day of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft came to a close.

The Draft concludes on Saturday, with exclusive coverage of Rounds 11-40 beginning on MLB.com at 1 p.m. ET.

Wallace, who stands 6-foot-2, 175 pounds, went 5-6 with a 4.19 ERA in 15 starts for the Red Wolves. He struck out 76 while walking 30 in 77 1/3 innings.

Wallace is a fan of the book, "Play Big: Mental Toughness Secrets That Take Baseball Players To The Next Level," written by Dr. Tom Hanson.

He has credited "Play Big" for helping him deal with outside distractions and focus on pitching.
