Menlo College baseball all-Americans Jason Alexander and Julian Jarrard have signed free agent contracts.
Alexander signed a minor league free agent deal with the Los Angeles Angels while Jarrard was picked up by the Milwaukee Brewers.
The ace of Menlo's staff, Alexander was named an NAIA All-American Honorable Mention. The right-hander made 14 starts for the Oaks, totaling a 9-2 overall record. He struck out 84 and walked just 15 in 89.2 innings of work and boasted a team-best 2.71 ERA.
His 115 career strikeouts put him in seventh place all time and his 84 this season are good for third in a single season.
Jarrard, also an honorable mention all-American, the most powerful shortstop in the conference, hit 22 home runs, second in a single-season in program history, drove in 56 runs, drew 13 walks and slugged .723. He also fielded an impressive .974 as the team's everyday shortstop.
