STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford right-hander Cal Quantrill was named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American, Collegiate Baseball announced Wednesday.

Quantrill, who won two games at the Bloomington Regional, is the fourth Freshman All-Ameican for Stanford in the last five years. He joins current third baseman Alex Blandino (2012), Brian Ragira (2011) and Kenny Diekroeger (2010) as recent honorees. Other Cardinal players to earn the recognition since 2000 include Drew Storen (2008), John Mayberry, Jr. (2003), Mark Romanczuk (2003), Matt Manship (2003), and Sam Fuld (2001).

The newcomer is 7-5 with a 2.69 ERA, as Stanford prepares for the Nashville Super Regional. He was named to the Bloomington Regional All-Tournament Team by going 2-0 with a 0.79 ERA in 11.1 innings.

Quantrill was also the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year after spending much of the season as the Cardinal’s Friday night starter. He highlighted Stanford’s freshmen class that started 24 of 53 games in the regular season and earned five wins in conference play.

The Port Hope, Ontario native was Stanford’s first freshman to start opening day since Mike Mussina in 1988.

The Cardinal departs for Nashville Wednesday afternoon for the best-of-three series against Vanderbilt. The Super Regional opener is Friday at 10 a.m. PT on ESPN2.
