The countdown to college baseball means more preseason honors. Baseball America released their Preseason All-American Team Monday morning. The publication has 2 Rebels, 1 Bulldog, and 1 Golden Eagle making the grade.
Ole Miss pitchers Ryan Rolison and Dallas Woolfolk are on the 2nd Team. Rolison was 6-3 in 2017 with a 3.06 ERA, earning SEC All-Freshman honors. Woolfolk recorded 12 saves last season, one shy of a Rebel record.
Mississippi State pitcher Konnor Pilkington earned yet another preseason honor. The Bulldog is on the 2nd Team. Pilkington was 8-5 last season with a 3.08 ERA. He recorded 111 K's in 2017.
Southern Miss standout Matt Wallner made the Baseball America 3rd Team as a hitter and a pitcher. The Minnesota native hit .336 with 19 homers and 63 RBI in 2017. All of those set Southern Miss freshman records. Wallner was recently named the Preseason C-USA Player of the Year.
