NCAA baseball All-Americans: Mountain West lands a pair in Baseball America's list

Christian Petersen

Fresno State and New Mexico each land a player on Baseball America's All-America list.

More college baseball All-America lists have been announced and the latest comes from Baseball America. They are consistent in the Mountain West players that have been named to other preseason lists.

Baseball America tabs Fresno State junior outfielder Aaron Judge who was named to the first team, while New Mexico junior third baseman D.J. Peterson was named to the second team. Last season Judge hit .308, scored 47 times and had 20 extra base hits. Peterson ended the 2012 season by hitting .419 with 57 runs, 78 RBIs and 17 home runs.

The Baseball American All-American list is a bit different from others, because they make their selections based on performance, talent and professional potential. They are successful at that as well, in the 2013 MLB Draft 16 of the 18 first-round selections were at one point on Baseball America's preseason list during their college career.

Baseball America's list carries a lot of weight and likely means that Petersno and Judge have a very good chance at being drafted in the first few rounds once they test the waters in the MLB Draft.
