FAYETTEVILLE - Redshirt sophomore outfielder Tyler Spoon was selected by the Oakland Athletics in the 36th round of the 2014 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft on Saturday.

Spoon, who was the 1092nd overall pick, became the sixth Arkansas player selected in the 2014 MLB Draft. He joins Brian Anderson (76 overall, Miami), Chris Oliver (112 overall, Philadelphia), Jalen Beeks (374 overall, Boston), Michael Gunn (494 overall, Boston) and Eric Fisher (497 overall, Miami).

A native of Van Buren, Ark., Tyler Spoon played in 64 games as a redshirt sophomore for the Razorbacks in 2014, hitting .256 with 12 doubles, two triples and three home runs. He had 13 multi-hit games and ranked third on the team with nine multi-RBI games.

He had a breakout game against Alabama in the series opener on March 21, launching a grand slam for one of his three home runs on the year. Spoon finished the 2014 season with two three-hit games and reached base safely a season-best 13 straight games.

After redshirting the 2012 season, Spoon made his collegiate debut in 2013 and hit .288 in 61 games with four home runs and 49 runs batted in to earn Southeastern Conference All-Freshman Honors.

He has a .272 career batting average in 125 games for the Razorbacks and has made just one error in two seasons, posting a .996 fielding percentage with 17 assists from the outfield.
