STOCKTON, Calif. - Pacific outfielder Danny Mayer was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday in the 2017 Major League Baseball Draft. Mayer, who completed his senior season,  was picked in the 31st round.

Mayer clubbed another 12 home runs as a senior, bringing his career total to 27, third in Pacific history. He finished sixth in the West Coast Conference in homers this season after leading the conference as a junior with 15. Mayer's career .485 slugging percentage ranks 14th in Pacific history. Both marks are the best by any Pacific player during the wood bat or BBCOR bat eras. He also hit .242 as a senior with five doubles and walked 19 times for a .340 on-base percentage.

Mayer was drafted last season, by the Minnesota Twins in the 37th round, following his breakout junior campaign. In addition to leading the WCC in homers, Mayer hit .314 with 16 doubles and 135 total bases.

In his career, Mayer played in 132 games with the Tigers, starting 123.
