Imhof signs million dollar contract with Phillies

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - Cal Poly pitcher Matt Imhof is officially part of the Philadelphia Phillies' organization after agreeing to terms on Tuesday following his selection in the second round of the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft.

Imhof, the third-highest Cal Poly player ever taken in the draft, will receive a signing bonus that corresponds to the $1,187,900 slot allocation Major League Baseball sets for the 47th pick.

The junior southpaw broke a Cal Poly Division I single-game record, striking out 15 batters in a game against Seattle this past season and tallied 10 wins and four losses in the No. 1 spot in the rotation throughout the duration of the season.

With 124 total strikeouts in 99 1/3 innings, Imhof compiled a 2.45 ERA and won a share of the Mike Krukow Outstanding Pitcher Award, given annually to the Mustangs top pitcher, with teammate Casey Bloomquist.

Imhof was a member of the All-Big West first team and the Louisville Slugger All-American second team, according to Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
