After being selected 73rd overall by the Minnesota Twins, Kyle Cody has declined the option to sign and return to Kentucky for the 2016 season. Cody’s slot was valued at $839, 700 with the Twins.
Cody was the Cats’ Sunday starter and the top MLB Prospect on the 2015 team. With Cody returning, Kentucky will have an excellent rotation with Zack Brown and Dustin Beggs as the other weekend starters. With Kentucky losing Ka’ai Tom and Kyle Barrett in the Draft, along with top recruit Nick Plummer, Cody returning is a huge get for the Cats. Kentucky will have one of the top rotations in the SEC and should compete in the East Division.
