Reid Detmers remained firm in his commitment to the University of Louisville, and thus will don a Cardinals uniform this coming school year.
The 6-foot-2 left-handed pitcher, a Nokomis native who finished his high school career with the Glenwood Titans last spring, was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 32nd round of the Major League First-Year Player Draft on June 14. Indications are that his desire to attend college caused him to be drafted much later than his skills indicate. Major League teams knew that he wanted to go to Louisville.
Now that the deadline to sign with the Braves passed on July 15, Detmers will not be eligible to be drafted again until 2020, as college players are not eligible to be drafted until they have been out of high school for three years.
