Cole Irvin named Pre-Season All American

EUGENE, Ore. – Sophomore left-hander Cole Irvin has been named a preseason third-team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA).

Oregon’s Saturday starter last season, Irvin finished with a school-record 12 wins while wrapping up his freshman season with a 2.48 ERA, a 12-3 record and four complete games. He claimed freshman All-America honors by both the NCBWA and Louisville Slugger, while earning honorable mention all-league recognition.

Irvin claimed Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week honors twice, while being named the NCBWA National Pitcher of the Week once. He won both the national and conference award after throwing his first career complete game, a 6-0 shutout of Washington where he struck out a season-high 11. His second Pac-12 award came after he shut out Ohio State in a 4-0 win with seven strikeouts. Irvin was also named to the Eugene Regional All-Tournament Team after holding San Francisco to just one run on six hits with nine strikeouts.

The Yorba Linda, Calif., native started last season as Oregon’s Sunday starter but moved to Saturday’s in early April. After the change, Irvin went 6-2 with a 1.92 ERA and three complete games in eight starts. He finished the season with seven straight quality starts, while tying teammate Tommy Thorpe with a team-high 12 quality starts during the season.

    Except one of those 3 teams is Oregon…………..”We will know soon how the Ducks and Altman respond to the upgraded challenges of conference play, a conference that currently features three teams ranked in the Top 20.”
