TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State baseball players Deven Marrero and Joey DeMichele have been selected to College Sports Madness' 2012 Baseball Preseason All-American Teams, the website announced today.

Marrero, a junior infielder, was named to the second team after earning Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year honors and First Team All-Pac-10 last season.

He won the Pac-10 batting crown with a .368 average last year as a sophomore and also led the conference in slugging percentage (.663), triples (7) and total bases (128). Appearing in 52 games, primarily as a designated hitter, he collected 51 RBIs and a team-leading nine home runs. He was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2011 Tempe Regional and was a First Team ABCA All-American, a Third Team Baseball America All-American, a First Team ABCA All-West Region choice and a First Team All-Pac-10 pick.
