Swift Current Indians pitcher Adam Paulencu has been selected by the San Francisco Giants in the 2011 Major League Baseball draft.

The Sherwood Park native was selected 417th overall (13th round) by the defending World Series champions.

Paulencu had a 6-4 record with a 2.40 earned-run average in 49.67 innings' work at the Vancouver Island Baseball Institute this spring. He didn't allow any earned runs in his 17 innings of regular season and three innings of playoff action with the Indians last season.

The six-foot-three, 185-pound right-handed pitcher has yet to appear in a game for the Indians this season.
