2011 MLB DRAFT
Selected in the 42nd round (1,268 overall) by the Cleveland Indians in the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
Oregon’s three-year (2009-11) starting shortstop KC Serna was the eighth Oregon Duck selected in the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft when he was taken in the 42nd round by the Cleveland Indians on June 8.
For three years, Serna was part of the Ducks’ middle infield tandem with Danny Pulfer (Arizona Diamondbacks, 19th round).
The native of Ventura, Calif., was part of Oregon’s original class as the Ducks brought back baseball for 2009 after the program was discontinued following the 1981 season.
In three years at Oregon, Serna was named to the 2010 Norwich All-Regional Team, and was also a 2010 Pac-10 honorable mention selection following his sophomore campaign.
During his career in an UO uniform, Serna batted .276 in 161 games. His 163 career hits rank second all-time in program history, while his 93 career runs scored rank seventh.
In addition, Serna’s 26 career doubles rank third all-time while his 10 home runs are the most any UO player hit from 2009-11.
Serna, the 1,268th overall selection of the 2011 MLB Draft, also used his speed to steal 35 bases in his career, a total that ranks second all-time at Oregon. Defensively, Serna helped turn 92 double plays in his last three years for the Ducks.
During his sophomore season in 2010, Serna led the Ducks batting .348 with 81 hits – a UO single-season record – as well as 13 doubles, 37 runs driven in, 45 runs scored, 14 stolen bases and a .476 slugging percentage.
Serna was Oregon’s 36th draft selection in the history of the program and the 15th pick since UO baseball returned to the diamond in 2009. Serna was also the fourth UO position player to be drafted since 2009.
