After taking a pair of right-handed pitchers in the first round of the 2014 First Year Player Draft, the Cardinals selected another righty, Ronnie Williams, with their second-round selection, the No. 68 overall pick.

Williams, 18, pitched for American Senior High School in Florida and has committed to play at Florida A&M University. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Williams was a two-way player in high school, much like the Cardinals’ second pick of the night, Jack Flaherty.

As a junior, Williams went 4-1 with a 2.58 ERA and hit .394. He was then named to the Miami Herald’s All-Dade First Team after finishing his senior season 7-1 with a 1.01 ERA and 83 strikeouts.

Williams joins Luke Weaver (No. 27) and Flaherty (No. 34) as the first three of the Cardinals’ four Day 1 picks. The Cardinals later chose college right-hander Andrew Morales with the 71st overall pick, an extra selection awarded to St. Louis through the competitive balance lottery.
