FAIRBORN, Ohio (WRGT/WKEF) -- The MLB Draft is where dreams come true, and for Wright State Raider Ryan Weiss his time is now.

The fierce right hander is taking his talents to the Arizona desert. The Diamondbacks called his name in the 4th round with pick number 129 overall.

Weiss is an All-League first teamer, and was named Horizon League Freshman of the Year last season. He finishes the year averaging just under a strike out an inning, while performing as the team's workhorse.

Wright State Skipper Jeff Mercer is heaping praise on Weiss. He took to Twitter, and said he is proud of all the hard work he put in during his time in Fairborn.
