Andrew Toles, who had an abbreviated career at Tennessee, was picked in the third round of the Major League Baseball draft Tuesday by the Tampa Bay Rays.
Toles, a center-fielder, hit .270 as a freshman at UT in 2011. He was dismissed from the team last fall by new coach Dave Serrano.
Toles played this spring at Chiploa College in Florida.
He was the 119th player taken in the draft and the first with UT connections.
Toles is the son of former UT linebacker Alvin Toles.
