Coastal’s Remillard drafted in 19th round by Chicago Cubs

Coastal Carolina redshirt sophomore catcher Will Remillard was selected as the second pick of the 19th round (558th overall pick) by the Chicago Cubs in the 2013 Major League Baseball First Year Draft.

Remillard is the second Chanticleer selected in this year draft, joining teammate Jacob May (third round pick by the Chicago White Sox). This marks the seventh straight year at least two Chants have been drafted in the same year, the 17th straight year at least one Chant was drafted and second straight year a Coastal Carolina catcher was picked as Tucker Frawley was an eighth round pick by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2012.

Remillard was named second team All-Big South and led Coastal Carolina with 39 RBI this past season in his first year behind the plate for the Chants. Remillard began his collegiate career at Temple, where he was named the Philadelphia Big 5 Rookie of the Year, and sat out at CCU last season per NCAA transfer rules.

In 54 games, including 51 starts, Remillard batted .280 with a team-best 13 doubles and just 17 strikeouts – the fewest among the Chants with at least 90 at bats. Remillard played sparingly due to injury in the final series of the regular season, the Big South Tournament and the NCAA Regional, getting just 11 at bats over CCU’s final nine games.

The Cohoes, N.Y., native ranked eighth in the Big South in RBI, fifth in sacrifice flies (6), sixth in two-out RBI (17), third in runners picked off (5) and sixth in runner caught stealing (19). However, runners only attempted to steal against Remillard 46 times which were the third fewest attempts against a league catcher.

Remillard had a 16-game hit streak early in the season, batting .393 (24-for-61) over the span with 11 runs scored and 15 RBI. He set two CCU single-game records in the 14-inning win over College of Charleston with 20 putouts and 23 defensive chances. Helped CCU take 2-of-3 games at #23 Georgia Tech as he went 2-for-4 in game two of the series and was just 1-for-4 in the finale with his one hit being a solo home run to tie the game and spark a seven-run seventh inning. Remillard’s best game this season came in a contest which he played just four innings in a blowout win over UNC Wilmington late in the season. He went 3-for-4 –two doubles and a triple — with a career-high five RBI (an RBI triple, an RBI double and three-run double).
