LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech junior left-handed pitcher Chris Sadberry has agreed to terms with the Miami Marlins and will report Monday to Jupiter, Fla., the site of the organization's spring training facilities.

Sadberry, a sixth-round draft pick, will most likely be headed to the Rookie New York-Penn League (Batavia Muckdogs) or the Class-A South Atlantic League (Greensboro Grasshoppers).

Sadberry was the only Red Raider to make a start each week of the season with 17 starts, ranking second in the Big 12. He went 5-3 with a 3.03 ERA in a team-leading 95.0 innings during his only season with the Red Raiders. Sadberry led Tech with 65 strikeouts while issuing only 25 walks.

An All-Big 12 second team selection, Sadberry is the first Red Raider starting pitcher to receive all-league honors since 2001 (Chris Phillips, Brandon Roberson) and is the first Red Raider to make 17 starts in a season since 2006 (Miles Morgan, 17).

He allowed two or fewer runs in 13-of-17 starts and threw at least seven innings on four occasions.

He tallied a 1-1 record in the NCAA Tournament with a 1.64 ERA in four outings (3 starts) with 22.0 innings pitched, 13 hits allowed, 18 strikeouts and six walks allowed while opponents batted just .186.

    Lower federal courts have so far agreed with opponents of the travel ban, who argue it targets Muslims in violation of federal law and the Constitution and stems from Trump's campaign pledge to halt the entry of all Muslims into the U.S.
