CJ Van Eyk picked in second round by the Blue Jays

FSU right-handed pitcher CJ Van Eyk, a former standout at Steinbrenner, was taken in the second round by the Blue Jays.

Three years ago, Van Eyk was selected in the 19th round by the New York Mets. He likely would have been taken higher but arm soreness forced him to shut down his senior season at Steinbernner after just 38 innings on the mound.

Van Eyk developed into a solid starter at FSU. Last season, he had a 3.81 ERA and averaged more than 11 strikeouts per nine innings.

The junior was off to another strong start in the spring with a 1.31 ERA to go along with 25 strikeouts and 12 walks in 20.2 innings pitched before the season was canceled.
