LSU junior right-handed pitcher Riley Smith announced Monday night on Instagram that he will sign with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was drafted in the 24th round with the 719th pick this year.

rileywade: Coming to LSU was one of the best decisions I've ever made, I met so many great people, made lifetime memories, and was apart of one of the best experiences in college baseball! I can't thank the fans, coaches and members of the LSU baseball program enough for such a special season! I will miss playing under the lights at Alex box stadium but am very excited to start my professional career with the Arizona Diamonbacks #GeauxTigahs #ForeverLSU
Smith dealt with a nagging shoulder injury this season and threw just 22.1 innings all season with a 7.66 ERA.

Good for him. Best of luck. With his struggles and the large class coming in, who knows how things would shake out in his future. He has the stuff to be great, hopefully everything works out for him.
