Nick Wegmann's tenure with the Washington Wild Things was a short one as the pitcher was selected by Seattle on Wednesday in the Major League Baseball Draft, just eight days after signing with the local Frontier League club.

He was taken by the Mariners in the 34th round.

In four games and 3 13 innings with the Wild Things, the lefty struck out three batters and held opponents to a .182 average.

The Apalachin, N.Y., native pitched four seasons with Binghamton University and made 51 appearances with 32 starts.

He struck out 140 batters and walked 61 over 187 innings and recorded a career 3.82 earned-run average.

Wegmann was voted to the America East all-conference second team for the second year in row in 2018.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
