Decisions, Decisions…Do you return for your Senior Year at Oregon, or do you go to Minor League ball and sign on the dotted line with the Oakland A’s. That decision is up to Junior and First Baseman for the Ducks Ryon Healy.

Healy was instrumental for Oregon all season long and came through with clutch hits when the Ducks needed them most.

He was chosen in the Third Round.

Here is what the folks at MLB.com have to say about Healy:

Healy arrived at Oregon as a third baseman, but moved across the diamond to first base as a freshman. He has blossomed into an excellent defender at first base with the potential for plus power. Healy has continued to play third base in the summer and he may get a chance to try the position again as a professional. Listed at 6-foot-5, 227 pounds, Healy is a physical player, but still fairly athletic for his size. Healy has consistently been one of the best college hitters for three years and is a candidate for the Pac-12 Player of the Year.

There are other Ducks who also have dreams for Major League Baseball including J.J. Altobelli, Ryan Hambright and maybe even (Junior) Jimmie Sherfy. All may have choices to make before the weekend is over.
