With the 422nd pick in the 2014 MLB draft, the New York Yankees selected pitcher Kenny Powers...errr, Sean Carley, out of West Virginia.

Powers is, of course, a fictional character played by actor Danny McBride in the hit HBO show Eastbound & Down, while Carley is a very real pitching prospect. He told Florida Today's John Torres that he'll be dropping the Powers look when he gets to the minors. 

"I may not look like Kenny Powers when I begin in the minors," he laughed, "but I guaranteed at some point he will make a return."
