Alex Wimmers has been chosen as the best pitcher in college baseball for the 2010 season. Ohio State’s junior All-American, who had a 9-0 record and a 1.61 earned run average this season, was named by the College Baseball Foundation (CBF) as its National Pitcher of the Year earlier this month in Lubbock, Texas.

Wimmers, just the second winner of the CBF’s National Pitcher of the Year Award after Stephen Strasburg won it in 2009, was chosen the honor over an all-star lineup of outstanding collegiate pitchers, including finalists Drew Pomerantz, who was 9-2 with a 2.24 ERA this year for Mississippi, and Chris Sale, the Florida Gulf Coast pitcher, who was 11-0 with a 2.01 ERA.

The 10 semifinalists included Arizona State’s Seth Blair, Cal State Fullerton’s Noe Ramirez, Coastal Carolina’s Anthony Meo, Texas’ Chance Ruffin, Texas A&M’s John Stilson, Virginia’s Danny Hultzen and TCU’s Matt Purke.

Bob Todd, Ohio State’s retiring baseball coach, attended the awards show in support of his ace hurler.

Career-wise Wimmers, who was drafted in the first round of the 2010 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft by the Minnesota Twins, ranks among Ohio State’s all-time Top 5 in four key statistical areas and he is sixth in another. He is fourth at Ohio State in fewest runs allowed (81) and he is fifth in strikeouts (273), fewest earned runs (71) and fewest hits (173). He is also sixth in earned run average (2.94). His 18 career victories rank 23rd. His strikeout total is also good for a 16th place tie all-time in the Big Ten Conference.
