"I was actually at a movie when I found out. Luckily it was right at the end of the movie when all the calls, emails, text messages and tweets started coming in. I had talked to the Angels prior (to the draft). Actually, I talked with one of their scouts when we played down at Stetson earlier this year. I knew they were looking at me but I had no idea when I was going to go."
