It is the second straight season the Giants have selected the Huskies' closer as they took Pat Ruotolo in the 27th round past year.

Hall is committed to Florida State, and will now have to decide if he'll play for the Seminoles or forgo college baseball to sign with the O's. The 6-foot-2 junior from Spanish Fork High went No. 1,029 to Toronto after going 7-7 as a starter in 2017 with a 6.01 ERA and 73 strikeouts in 88 1/3 innings.
