Improved by leaps and bounds over his two seasons for Gonzaga.
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Long Beach State’s Nico Zeglin has been named a Second Team All-American by Collegiate Baseball. The honorees were announced on Thursday morning.
The right-hander was a revelation in the Dirtbags weekend rotation throughout the 2023 campaign. In 94.2 innings pitched, he posted an even 2.00 ERA with 117 strikeouts. Both of those marks rank seventh in all of NCAA Division I baseball among qualified pitchers.
He also ranked 12tha in the nation in WHIP at 0.99 and 26tha in H/9, allowing just 6.37 hits per nine innings. His .202 opponent batting average was also among the nation’s leaders as was his 4.33 strikeout-to-walk ratio and 11.12 strikeouts per nine.
Making 15 starts on the mound, he recorded 10 quality starts including six straight to end the season. In fact, he only surrendered more than three earned runs in one outing all season. He also notched five double-digit strikeout outings in his final collegiate season.
Zeglin becomes the fifth All-American pitcher under head coach Eric Valenzuela over the last four seasons.
