Selected in the 19th round (574 overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

Oregon three-year starter Danny Pulfer was the sixth Oregon Duck selected in the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft when he was take in the 19th round by the Arizona Diamondbacks on June 7.

Pulfer, the Ducks’ starting second baseman for three consecutive seasons (2009-11), was just the third position player selected in the draft since UO baseball returned to the diamond in 2009.

Pulfer, the 574th overall pick, 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 Cypress, Calif., was also named to the Pac-10 All-Conference team following the 2011 regular season, becoming the first position player to earn the honor since the Oregon program was reinstated. He was named Pac-10 honorable mention in 2010.

During his three-year career with the Ducks, Pulfer is one of only two players (Shawn Peterson) since 2009 to bat over .300 for their respective careers.

Pulfer departed Oregon with a .302 career average, and holds the all-time records for hits (193), doubles (31), at-bats (639), games played (78) and multiple-hit games (58).

During three seasons at Oregon, Pulfer appeared in 178 games (177 starts) missing just two games and (three starts) throughout his career at UO.

Pulfer was the 34th Oregon player to be selected in the MLB draft and the third position player to be drafted since the program was brought back in 2009.
