2011 MLB DRAFT
Selected in the seventh round (216 overall) by the Kansas City Royals in the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
Kellen Moen was selected by the Kansas City Royals in the seventh round of the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. The 6-foot-2 righty was the 216th overall pick after spending two years at the University of Oregon.
Moen was the fourth UO pitcher to be selected in the 2011 MLB Draft, and the ninth for the program since UO baseball was reinstated for the 2009 season.
During two years at Oregon after coming to the Ducks from El Camino College, Moen made 31 appearances on the mound – all in relief. He finished his UO career with a 1-4 record, 2.89 ERA, and 49 strikeouts in 46 and 2/3 innings pitched.
The native of Juneau, Alaska made just three appearances as a junior in 2010, but had a breakout season during his 2011 senior campaign and earned Pac-10 honorable mention accolades.
Moen set a new UO record with eight saves in a single season, and also made 28 relief appearances and tossed 41 and 1/3 innings.
