Capital Region native and University of Virginia junior second baseman Branden Cogswell was named to the ACC First Team on Monday.

Cogswell was a preseason All-American after a stellar 2013 campaign at shortstop, but he made the move to second this season.

He’s hitting .291 while getting on base at a .398 clip. Defensively, he has a .992 fielding percentage.

The Shen graduate is a projected major league draft pick this year.

Virginia has been No. 1 in the nation for most of the season, but earned the No. 3 seed in the ACC tournament and will play Maryland tomorrow.

Cogswell joined me last week to break down all things UVA, the MLB draft, and what playing in the Capital Region meant to him growing up. You can listen below.
