Staff reports
ND Insider

A forearm injury during his senior season this spring kept Notre Dame right-handed pitcher Sean Fitzgerald from hearing his name called during the 2014 MLB draft.

Fitzgerald has since signed a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Angels.

Before suffering forearm soreness and swelling that kept him out, Fitzgerald had established himself as one of the most consistent pitchers in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

In 10 outings, he was 3-3 with a 2.29 ERA in 70ð innings pitched. He had two complete games and held opponents to a .204 batting average.

At the time of his injury he was tied for second in the ACC in complete games and tied for third in starts and was also fourth in innings pitched and 11th in ERA.
