Hayes gives White Sox an experienced college bat

Oregon State first baseman Danny Hayes is having a pretty good week. In the Beavers' Corvallis Regional Final game of the NCAA baseball tournament last Sunday, Hayes drove in three runs to seal his team's trip to the Super Regionals. Then on Saturday, he was selected in the 13th round of the First-Year Player Draft by the Chicago White Sox.

The senior from Rancho Murieta, Calif., didn't get on base as much this season as he did in his junior year, when he batted .307 with five home runs and 27 RBIs. He did improve his run production, plating 37 as a senior and leading the Beavers to a 48-10 record.

Hayes has a strong glove at first and gives the White Sox an experienced bat. He started all four years at Oregon State.
