The Chicago Cubs have selected righty Gray Fenter from the Baltimore Orioles in the MLB Rule 5 Draft on Thursday afternoon.

In 2019, Fenter had an 8-2 record (22 games, 17 starts) with a sparkling 1.81 ERA in the South Atlantic League (Class-A).

The 24-year-old had an impressive 123 strikeouts in 94 1/3 innings pitched (11.7 per 9 innings) and held batters to a .185 batting average.

The Orioles selected him in the seventh round of the 2015 MLB draft out of Arkansas.

In other Cubs-related MLB Rule 5 draft news, the Cubs lost righty minor league pitchers Yunior Perez and Jeffrey Passantino.
