Hultzen Named Second-Team All-American by Baseball America
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia sophomore pitcher Danny Hultzen (Bethesda, Md.) has been named a Second-Team All-American by Baseball America, the publication announced Wednesday. It marks Hultzen’s second straight All-America selection by Baseball America – he was a third-team pick at utility last season.
Hultzen went 11-1 with an ACC-low 2.78 earned run average this season. In 106.2 innings, he allowed 75 hits and 24 walks while striking out 123. Opponents hit just .193 against him this year.

He currently ranks 10th nationally in hits allowed per nine innings (6.33) and 11th in strikeouts and wins.
