Over the last month, preseason honors have been rolling in for junior pitcher Mike Minor.
The Chapel Hill, Tenn., native was recently named second-team preseason All-American by National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and Collegiate Baseball. He's also on the Brooks Wallace Award Watch List, presented annually to the nation's top collegiate baseball player.
Minor had a successful offseason and was recognized as the Summer Player of the Year by Baseball America. He went 3-0 with a 0.75 ERA during his tour with USA Baseball National team.
The Commodores are scheduled to open up the 2009 slate with a trip out West beginning on February 20 at Stanford.
