In the mid-to-late rounds of the MLB draft there are always tons of picks who’re related to players, coaches, managers, and front officer staffers, but here’s a little twist on that.

In the 19th round the Angels just picked Gannon University pitcher/infielder Aaron Cox, who happens to be the brother of Angels center fielder and reigning MVP Mike Trout’s girlfriend.

This season Cox started 10 games with a 3.74 ERA and 81/15 K/BB ratio in 65 innings and hit .316 with eight homers and a 1.013 OPS in 43 games as a position player.
