Tyler Mautner heading to the Elizabethton Twins

After being drafted in the 14th round of this years Major League Baseball Draft by the Minnesota Twins UB redshirt Sophomore Tyler Mautner wasted little time in signing his deal. Right after the draft he told ticaOD.com that he will be signing with the twins and give up his two remaining seasons of NCAA eligibility.

Today the word is that his name is on the contact and UB's best hitter this season is heading to Elizabethton, Tennessee to play for the twins. The Twins are a Rookie-level team in the Appalachian League who have been a farm team of the Minnesota Twins since 1974. The Twins play home games at Joe O'Brien Field. Opened in 1974, Joe O'Brien Field seats 2,000 fans and, like the team, is owned by the city of Elizabethton

Last season saw Mautner start all 54 games and lead all UB batters in numerous categories. On the year he batted .295 and set the program’s single-season record with 23 doubles. That got him named to the Louisville Slugger All-American team and All-MAC second team. After the 2013 season he was named to The Perfect Game’s Summer College All-America Team after he erupted in Summer league action, winning the Far West League’s Triple Crown.

This past season Mautner batted .337, hitting 17 doubles, and batting in 52 runs as Buffalo once more went deep into the Mid American Conference tournament.
