Metro/prep roundup: A.J. Reed named District Player of Year

A.J. Reed has been named Distict III Player of the Year by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, it was announced Sunday.

Already the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year and the Collegiate Baseball Player of the Year nationally, plus a recent draftee by the Houston Astros, the Terre Haute South graduate is seeking to become just the third unanimous national player of the year in SEC history.

There are five major national player of the year awards in 2014: Collegiate Baseball, the NCBWA Dick Howser Trophy, Baseball America College Player of the Year, the USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award and the American Baseball Coaches Association Player of the Year.

Reed finished 2014 leading college baseball in homers (23), slugging (.735) and OPS (1.211), owning more homers himself than 185 teams in the NCAA. A first-team All-America selection, Reed hit .336, with 18 doubles, one triple, a SEC-leading 73 RBI, 49 walks and a .476 on-base percentage. On the mound, Reed became the first player in SEC history to lead the conference in pitching victories (12) and homers. He finished 12-2 with a 2.09 ERA in 16 starts, pitching the second-most innings in UK single-season history (112).

In his three-year UK career, Reed has a 19-13 record and a 2.83 ERA in 46 games and 248 innings. At the plate, Reed has hit .306 in 172 games, with 35 doubles, 40 homers and 168 RBI.
