College Baseball Daily continues our countdown to the start of the 2012 College Baseball season by checking in on the Top 100 Players in the country. We will be providing one player per day until we reach number 1.
We continue the countdown today at number 37 with UCLA sophomore RHP Adam Plutko. The Glendora, California native attended Glendora High School where he is a four-year varsity letterwinner under head coach Dan Henley. As a senior, he went 10-1 with a 1.36 ERA, 97 strikeouts and 18 walks in 67.0 innings. He was named a Preseason Under Armour All-American and selected as the CIF Southern Section Division II Player of the Year. Adam was selected in the sixth round of the 2010 MLB Draft by the Houston Astros but decided to head to UCLA.
Plutko’s freshman saw him serve as the Bruins number 3 starter behind first rounders Gerrit Cole and Trevor Bauer. He finished the year with a 7-4 with a 2.01 ERA in 16 appearances (15 starts). He was named a Freshman All-American from Louisville Slugger/Collegiate Baseball and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. Plutko was also named to the All-Pac-10 team honors.
