FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – There were no Fresno State Bulldogs taken in last week’s Major League Baseball draft, snapping a 43-year streak. However, on Wednesday Jaime Arias agreed to a deal with the Cleveland Indians.

Arias, a junior left-handed pitcher, made four starts in the 2020 shortened season. (The draft was shortened as well, from the normal 40 rounds to just five rounds.)

Arias was 2-1 this season with a 3.75 ERA.

Last season, he recorded 12 saves, tied for the second-most saves in a single season in program history. He was a first team all-Mountain West and a third team all-American.
