UNDATED (BaseballAmerica.com) - Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman, the top-ranked prospect in the 2019 draft class, and California first baseman Andrew Vaughn, the 2018 Golden Spikes Award winner, highlight the 2019 Baseball America Preseason All-America team.

Baseball America annually polls major league organizations’ scouting departments to vote on the team and asks that they make their selections based on performance, talent and professional potential. In the past, the Baseball America Preseason All-America team has been a predictor both of the first round of the draft and of team success.

Florida led all teams with four Preseason All-Americans last year and went on to be the No. 1 national seed. Oregon State, the 2018 national champions, had two honorees. In addition, nine members of the 2018 preseason first team became first-round picks last June, including College Player of the Year Brady Singer. In all, 13 players from last year’s Preseason All-America teams were drafted in the first round last year, including the top five picks overall.

Rutschman, Texas Tech third baseman Josh Jung and Duke lefthander Graeme Stinson were unanimous first-team selections. Baseball America received votes from 15 major league teams.
