Lemont’s Jake Latz among six Southland baseball players drafted on Day 2 – Chicago Tribune

Jake Latz hasn’t pitched in a baseball game since June 7, 2016.

That didn’t prevent the Texas Rangers from drafting the Lemont graduate Tuesday in the fifth round, 164th overall.

Latz, a hard-throwing left-hander, had to sit out this season per NCAA rules after transferring from Louisiana State to Kent State.

A redshirt sophomore, Latz, 21, was appreciative of how much faith the Rangers showed in him.
