Daulton Compton Jefferies is a professional American baseball pitcher for the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball.
The college baseball team he played for was the California Golden Bears. The Athletics selected him with the 37th overall choice in the 2016 MLB draft, and he debuted in the MLB in 2020.
Jefferies pitched and played shortstop while attending Buhach Colony High School in Atwater, California.
Jefferies was selected the Central California Conference’s most valuable player (MVP) as a junior in high school after posting an 8–0 record with a 1.26 earned run average (ERA) and a.366/.480/.506 slash line.
Daulton’s senior year, he finished 10-2 with an ERA of 0.80 and a school record of 142 strikeouts, earning him the Central California Conference Most Valuable Player award once again.
Jefferies had committed to play baseball for Stanford University during the summer of his junior year of high school, but the offer fell through and he was forced to choose a new school; he ultimately chose the University of California, Berkeley.
Jefferies started 15 games as a freshman for the California Golden Bears in 2014, ending with a 2–8 record, a 3.50 ERA, 58 strikeouts, and a team-high 92+33 innings pitched.
During his sophomore year, both Jefferies’ record and earned run average improved, as he appeared in 14 games, started 13 of them, and posted a 6–5 record with a 2.60 ERA, good enough for First Team All-Pac-12 honors.
