Penn State Baseball Shortstop Jay Harry Drafted By Minnesota Twins In 2023 MLB Draft

Jay Harry is taking steps toward The Show.

The Minnesota Twins selected former Penn State shortstop Jay Harry in the sixth round of the 2023 MLB Draft with the No. 177 overall pick Monday afternoon.

Harry was named the starting shortstop during opening day of his freshman season and maintained his starting position throughout his three seasons in Happy Valley. He made 145 starts at shortstop and missed only one game during his sophomore season.

In that time, the left-hander batted .304 over three seasons, collected 169 hits, 81 RBIs, and scored 109 runs. Harry’s best season came in 2022 when he battled .333 with 71 hits, which ranks second behind former catcher and 2022 MLB Draft selection Matt Wood.
