All-Region Teams: ABCA - West Region
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV baseball's Kyle Isbel and Bryson Stott garnered some postseason recognition Wednesday with the announcement of D1Baseball and Perfect Game's All-American Teams as well as the American Baseball Coaches Association's All-Region Teams.
Isbel, who just signed a professional contract after being selected by the Kansas City Royals in the third round of last week's Major League Baseball Draft, was tabbed a Third Team All-American by D1Baseball and Honorable Mention All-American by Perfect Game/Rawlings. Additionally, he was chosen to the ABCA/Rawlings All-West Region First Team.
The junior outfielder from Etiwanda, California, led the Rebels in total bases (153) and slugging percentage (.643), which rank 11th and 41st in the NCAA statistics, respectively. In all, Isbel sits in the top 100 nationally in 12 different categories. He tied for the top spot on the team in triples (four), and came in second in batting average (.357), runs (59), hits (85), doubles (18), home runs (14), RBI (56), walks (34) and on-base percentage (.441).
Perfect Game/Rawlings also recognized Stott as a Third Team All-American; the same designation Collegiate Baseball Newspaper bestowed upon him two weeks ago.
The sophomore shortstop from Las Vegas leads the nation in doubles (30) and sits second in doubles per game (0.51) and 13th in hits (92), while sitting in the top 100 of seven more NCAA statistical categories. Besides his hit and doubles haul, Stott also led the Scarlet & Gray in batting average (.365), at-bats (252), runs (61), on-base percentage (.442) and stolen bases (14).
The duo helped UNLV rank second nationally in doubles per game (2.39) as well as fourth in hits (662), fifth in doubles (141) and seventh in both batting average (.310) and slugging percentage (.487).
Both Isbel and Stott were bestowed Freshman All-American honors by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper in 2016 and '17, respectively. The duo is the first to be named All-America since Erick Fedde was a Second Team pick by CBN/Louisville slugger in 2014.
