STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State shortstop and pitcher Jordy Mercer has been named to the USA National Team.

The 20-player team is playing in the New England Collegiate Baseball League as it prepares for a series of games against China, Chinese Taipei and Japan.

The team will also play later this summer in the Pan American games in Brazil and the World Port Tournament in The Netherlands.

Mercer was second-team All-Big 12. He hit .299 with five home runs and 24 RBIs and as a pitcher was 3-and-1 with three saves despite missing more than 20 games at the start of the season while recovering from knee surgery.
