Third baseman Adam Duvall was selected in the 2010 draft by San Jose Giants
SAN JOSE, CA
San Jose Giants third baseman Adam Duvall has been named to the 2012 California League Postseason All-Star Team. He is the fourth San Jose Giants player to earn Postseason honors in the past two years as outfielder Gary Brown, catcher Tommy Joseph and pitcher Craig Westcott garnered awards in 2011.
Selected in the 11th round of the 2010 draft by the San Francisco Giants, Duvall has enjoyed great success at the plate in his first full season in San Jose. On August 17, he broke the San Jose Giants single-season home run record with his 27th long ball of the year and is currently tied for the league lead among all active California League players with 28 home runs. Hitting in the middle of the Giants order, Duvall is also fourth in the league in RBI (95) and runs scored (95), while owning a .488 slugging percentage.
“This is a tremendous honor for Adam to be recognized as the best third baseman in the Cal League”, said Andy Skeels, Manager of the San Jose Giants. “He has been our anchor all year offensively and this award is recognition that talent, a tireless work ethic and being a good teammate is what an All-Star player should be.”
