2011 MLB DRAFT
Selected in the second round (87 overall) by the Minnesota Twins in the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
Madison Boer was part of Oregon’s original class as the Ducks brought back baseball for 2009 after the program was discontinued following the 1981 season.
The native of Eden Prairie, Minn., was Oregon’s 30th draft selection in the history of the program and the ninth pick since UO baseball returned to the diamond in 2009.
Boer was both a reliever and starter for the Ducks during his time at Oregon, producing the best season of his career as a junior in 2011.
Despite his 3-6 record in 2011, Boer managed a 2.27 ERA in 18 appearances, 12 starts and 99 innings of work while holding opposing batters to a .234 clip. Boer recorded a career-best 74 strikeouts in 2011, and finished with 159 during his career.
Boer began his junior campaign as Oregon’s Saturday-starter in the rotation, but was moved to the bullpen for the final three weekends of the year, picking up a save in each series to finish with three stops on the season.
During three seasons at Oregon, Boer managed a 3.68 ERA and 7-15 record in 58 career appearances (second all-time).
His eight career saves tie for third all-time at Oregon.
