FLUSHING, N.Y. -- The New York Mets today announced the selection of right-handed pitcher Michael Fulmer from Deer Creek High School (OK) with the 44th overall pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft.

Fulmer, 18, went 10-2 with a 0.72 ERA and 127 strikeouts in 68 innings for Deer Creek High School, located in Edmond, OK. The right-hander also appeared at first base and third base during his career with the Antlers, hitting .436 with six home runs and 43 RBIs this season. He was named a 2011 first-team All-State selection.

The 6-3, 205-pounder received the Ferguson Jenkins Award this year, presented to the top five high school baseball players in Oklahoma.

Fulmer, who committed to the University of Arkansas, was selected with the compensation pick that the Mets received when reliever Pedro Feliciano signed with the New York Yankees.
