South Carolina junior catcher Grayson
Greiner earned Second-Team Preseason All-America honors from Perfect Game, as
announced on Monday afternoon.
This marks Greiner's second preseason accolade, as he
earned Second-Team Preseason All-America honors from Collegiate Baseball as
Greiner played this past summer for Team USA and was a
2013 second-team All-SEC selection. Baseball America ranks Greiner the No. 24
best college prospect for the 2014 MLB Draft as well as the No. 2 best catching
prospect in the country. He hit .298 with four homers and 38 RBI. Greiner also
was the team's top hitter in SEC games as he hit .310 (31-for-100) in 27 league
contests last year.
