Giants pick high school pitcher Webb in fourth round


Logan Webb had a pretty good Friday.

Before lunchtime, the right-hander from Rocklin High School, near Sacramento, was selected by the Giants with their fourth-round pick (118th overall) in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft.

On Friday night he walked across a stage to receive his diploma.

Not bad, huh?

Giants fans hope the same can one day be said about his career.

A Cal Poly signee, Webb (4-3) -- also his school's quarterback during the fall -- had a 0.49 ERA this season and recorded 73 strikeouts for the Thunder and was named the 2014 Sierra Foothill League MVP. He batted .337 with three home runs.

The Draft concludes on Saturday, with exclusive coverage of Rounds 11-40 beginning on MLB.com at 10 a.m. PT.
