Alabama sophomore pitcher and Preseason First Team All-American Connor Prielipp will undergo Tommy John surgery and will miss the remainder of the baseball season and the entire 2022 season according to D1 Baseball's Kendall Rogers. Prielipp only appeared in three games in 2021 for Alabama, leaving a big hole in the Crimson Tide's rotation this year.
It is that time of year again folks. We are less than 25 days away from Alabama baseball and the team is ranked 25th in Baseball America’s preseason poll. This is the Tide’s first appearance on Baseball America’s preseason poll since 2014. Before COVID-19 put an end to last year’s season, the Tide went 16-1, which is the best winning percentage in Alabama history.
