Franklin High School graduate Guillermo Trujillo has signed a professional contract with the New York Yankees, according to a tweet posted by Trujillo’s pitching coach Sean Snedeker.

Snedeker has coached Trujillo at Oral Roberts University since Trujillo accepted an athletic scholarship to play for the Golden Eagles after graduating high school 2012.

The theology major has accumulated a college career ERA of 3.65 with a 10-4 record in his 15 appearances on the mound. With an impressive 7.19 strikeouts per game, 8.46 in conference, the 165 strikeouts in the 207.1 innings he has pitched seem to be the reason why the Yankees find Trujillo a suitable player to sign as the season approaches playoffs in October.
