Bio: Nedeljkovic served as the University of Miami’s closer this spring, collecting an Atlantic Coast Conference-high 13 saves. He also boasted an impressive 30:4 strikeout-to-walk ration and held opposing hitters to a .188 average. He was named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association 2013 Stopper of the Year Award watch list. Drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 21st round, he is off to a fine start with the Dust Devils, recording his first professional save in a 4-1 win at Spokane on Monday. The crafty right-hander has a 3.00 ERA in three appearances and has yet to give up a hit to a left-handed batter.
