Tigers select Florida pitcher with top draft pick

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers have announced the selection of right-handed pitcher Jonathon Crawford with the team's top pick in the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Crawford's selection is the 20th overall. He compiled a 3-6 record with a 3.84 ERA and 69 strikeouts as a junior this year at the University of Florida. Crawford threw a no-hitter as a sophomore last June against Bethune-Cookman. He was rated by Baseball America as the ninth-best pitching prospect available in this year's draft and the 19th-best prospect overall.
