On paper not much has changed from a year ago February.

Last year Cal Quantrill of the Stanford Cardinal was named a pre-season Third-Team All-American by the highly-respected Baseball America. 

And while he only made three starts in 2015, Quantrill (Port Hope, Ont.) earned the same accolade this spring. He was named a member of the All-America Third Team from the Collegiate Baseball News Louisville Slugger this season. 

The former Ontario Terriers right-hander was the only Canadian NCAA Division I player to be so honored. 

Previous honors include and Perfect Game Preseason All-America Second Team, Louisville Slugger and Baseball America Preseason All-America Third Team, Louisville Slugger and Perfect Game Freshman All-American, Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, All-Pac-12, Bloomington Regional All-Tournament Team and Canadian Baseball Network All-Canadian First Team.

Quantrill started off 2015 season with a 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA prior to going down with a bad elbow and undergoing Tommy John surgery March 20.
