McCallum drafted by the Twins - 4th round

McCallum becomes the highest drafted Gopher since the Twins drafted Glen Perkins in 2004.

Derek McCallum a finalist for baseball's Dick Howser Trophy

The award is given annually by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association to NCAA's best college baseball player. McCallum was named one of 16 finalists. Former winners include Robin Ventura, Jason Varitek, Todd Helton, J.D. Drew, Mark Teixeira and of course Mark Prior. He has the numbers to be in the conversation but he doesn't have the name recognition to win it. I think it would be safe to assume that San Diego State pitcher, Stephen Strasburg is the heavy favorite to win. But being one of 16 finalists is a huge accomplishment and congrats to McCallum.
