Dietrich Enns, Lincoln-Way East graduate and Frankfort resident, has a big decision to make. The Lincoln-Way East High School grad was drafted by the New York Yankees in this week's Major League Baseball draft. Enns, a junior at Central Michigan University, was picked in the 19th round, 607th overall.
A left-handed pitcher, Enns has become a versatile member of CMU's staff in his three years on the team, working out of the bullpen as a closer and finding his way into the starting rotation this season, according to Central Michigan Life. In his first start this season, he threw a complete game shutout and went on to post a 2-0 record as a starter with a 0.89 ERA. Overall for the season, Enns went 4-2 with a 2.34 ERA.
Now the junior at Central Michigan University will have to choose between returning to CMU for his senior year, or signing with the team. If he stays at CMU, he would enter the 2013 draft, with a possibility of being selected higher, according the Central Michigan Life.
