Cody Austin Sedlock (born June 19, 1995) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Baltimore Orioles organization.


Sedlock attended Alleman High School in Rock Island, Illinois and played college baseball at the University of Illinois.[1][2] As a freshman in 2014 he appeared in 12 games with three starts. He was 1–3 with a 3.41 earned run average (ERA) and 30 strikeouts. As a sophomore in 2015 he appeared in 21 games with two starts and went 4–0 with a 4.02 ERA and 29 strikeouts. As a junior in 2016, Sedlock became a full-time starting pitcher.[3][4] That year he was named the Big Ten Pitcher of the Year.[5][6] During the season, he broke Illinois' single season strikeout record, previously held by John Ericks since 1988.[7]

On June 9, 2016, Sedlock was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the first round of the 2016 MLB draft. He made his professional debut that year with the Aberdeen IronBirds where he posted a 0-1 record with a 3.00 ERA in nine starts. In 2017, he played for the Frederick Keys where he went 4-5 with a 5.90 ERA in 20 starts.[8] He began 2018 back with Frederick, but pitched in only six games due to injury.[9]
