With their 39th round pick in the 2014 Draft the Cleveland Indians have selected right-handed pitcher Jake Morton out of Oakland University (MI).

Born: 4/3/1992 – Height: 6’1” – Weight: 200 – Bats: Right – Throws: Right

Jeff Ellis: Jake Morton is an interesting pick to me. He has been a catcher since his senior year of high school. He was drafted as a catcher out of high school by the Tigers. He went to Oakland where he is a red shirt junior and stayed behind the plate with mixed results. His bat was never the strongest, but it is still shocking to see the Indians draft him as a pitcher. He has not pitched since high school, and he is smaller for a right handed pitcher at 6’1”. It’s a gutsy call, and one to watch. I mean Morton hasn’t been on the mound in four years. This means someone must have really liked him four years ago and went to bat for him here.
