Padres sign Carrillo, Headley and Geer
Carrillo, who was also chosen as one of three finalists for the Roger Clemens Award given annually to the top pitcher in college baseball, also earned Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Year honors and was named to the All-ACC First-Team. Carrillo established a school record by winning his first 24 decisions, the fourth-longest winning streak in NCAA Division I history. During the streak, Carrillo compiled a 2.32 ERA (55 ER/213.0 IP) in 34 games (30 starts) while striking out 195 batters and holding the opposition to a .214 batting average.
Additionally, the Padres have agreed to terms with third baseman Chase Headley and right-handed pitcher Joshua Geer.
Headley, named to the Academic All-American team after posting a 3.63 GPA, hit .387 for Tennessee this past season with 14 homers, 65 RBI's and 24 doubles playing third base. He also drew 63 walks while striking out just 23 times to give him an on base percentage of .530.
Geer went 12-4 in 124.2 innings of work for Rice University. He has a fastball that tops out at 92, a plus changeup and compliments that with a slider and a curve. He was the number one starter on the Owls.
