The state’s top prospect is headed to the big leagues.

Noble Meyer, Jesuit HS right-hander and University of Oregon commit, was selected tenth overall by the Miami Marlins in the MLB Draft on Sunday night in Seattle.

Meyer is the highest-drafted prospect from the state since Adley Rutschman (Sherwood/Oregon State) went No. 1 overall to Baltimore in 2019. Rutschman will compete in Monday’s Home Run Derby at T Mobile Park in Seattle as well as Tuesday’s All-Star Game.

Meyer boasts a fastball that sits in the high-90s and occasionally can touch triple digits, but he says his best pitch is his slider. He also throws a changeup and curveball.

The 6’5” 18-year-old heads to Miami, who drafted a pitcher in the first round for the first time since 2017.

The signing bonus slot value for the No. 10 pick is $5,475,300.

His senior year at Jesuit, Meyer had a 0.33 ERA with 128 strikeouts in 31 games.

He was named the 2022-23 Gatorade Oregon Baseball Player of the Year.
