Baylor baseball senior Troy Montemayor has been named to the preseason watch list for the National Stopper of the Year, as selected by the Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.
Montemayor is coming off another brilliant season in which he recorded 12 saves with a 2.10 ERA. His 26 saves rank second in Baylor history.
Montemayor and the Bears will open up the 2018 season on Friday with a home series against Purdue. Baylor has moved its Sunday game against Purdue to a 12:05 p.m. start, an hour earlier than originally scheduled.
