More for Rutschman, June 12 CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State’s Adley Rutschman keeps pulling in the honors. The junior catcher was named Perfect Game’s National Player of the Year on Tuesday, just a day after collecting Baseball America’s top honor. He was also selected as Collegiate Baseball’s National Player of the Year just before the start of the postseason. Rutschman is also a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award, Dick Howser Trophy and Buster Posey Award. The backstop was selected as the Pac-12 Conference’s Player of the Year and Co-Defensive Player of the Year less than two full weeks ago. He was the No. 1 overall selection in the 2019 MLB First-Year Player Draft by Baltimore last week. The Sherwood, Ore., native batted .411 in 2019 to lead the Pac-12 in batting average. Rutschman also leads the nation with 76 walks – an Oregon State single-season record – and he hit 17 home runs with 58 RBI.
