Update: Pitcher Cody Ponce was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers with the 13th pick (55th overall) in the second round of the 2015 MLB Draft.

Ponce credits those who have stuck by his side, helping him along the way as he reached his latest career milestone.

“I just want to thank my coaches and family for the support they have shown me and helping me get to where I am at today,” he said.
