Ohio State junior and recently drafted right-hander Alex Wimmers made it two-for-two in All-American honors after he was named a first team PING! Baseball All-American.

The two-time first-team All-American drafted with the 21st overall pick by the Minnesota Twins in the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft was also named one of six finalists for the College Baseball Foundation’s Pitcher of the Year Award. The winner of the award will be announced in July in Lubbock, Texas as part of the College Baseball Awards Show.

Despite missing three starts and four weeks of action this season after injuring his hamstring, the Cincinnati native posted a sparking 9-0 record with a 1.60 ERA, good for fifth-best nationally, en route to an unprecedented second-consecutive Big Ten pitcher of the year honor. While becoming the first back-to-back winner of the award in Big Ten history, Wimmers also becomes only the second pitcher to claim the honor twice: Ohio State’s Justin Fry was Big Ten pitcher of the year in 1997 and 1999.
