FARGO, N.D. (NDSU) – Junior right-handed pitcher Cade Feeney has been selected by the Boston Red Sox with the 388th pick in the 13th round of the 2023 MLB Draft on Tuesday afternoon. Feeney started all 41 games he appeared in on the mound over three seasons at NDSU. The Bismarck, N.D., native totaled 196 strikeouts over 229.2 innings. His 196 strikeouts and 229.2 innings pitched are both slotted sixth in NDSU history. Feeney ranks third in Bison history in wins after compiling a 21-9 overall record on the mound and is one of only four pitchers in NDSU history to win at least 20 games. Feeney tossed a career-high 78 strikeouts over 80.2 innings last season. He tallied a 5-1 mark on the hill in Summit League play and led the conference with a 2.03 ERA. Feeney, who was selected to the All-Summit League First Team in 2021 and 2023, went on to earn a team-high six wins and compiled a 6-5 overall record in his junior season. Additionally, Feeney joins his brother, Dalton Feeney, as an MLB Draft pick after he was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 40th round in 2016 and played at North Carolina State from 2017-21.
Feeney becomes the 13th NDSU player selected in the MLB Draft dating back to 1968 when John Renhowe was picked in the 28th round by the Oakland Athletics. He is also only the eighth Bison pitcher to be picked in the draft. NDSU has had seven players selected since 2013, including Jonah Tong, who was picked in the seventh round by the New York Mets last season. Tong was drafted out of Bill Crothers Secondary School after signing his National Letter of Intent with NDSU.
