Israeli national team pitcher Dean Kremer got drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 14th round of MLB’s amateur draft this year and became one of the first players to sign a contract this year. The right-hander from UNLV is the first player from Israel to sign a MLB contract. He already had the chance last year, when the San Diego Padres selected him in the 38th round. However both sides didn’t agree on a contract and he re-entered the Draft this year. He pitched for Israel in the last two European Championship Qualifiers and is expected to suit up for the team in September’s World Baseball Classic Qualifier in Brooklyn.
