LSU sophomore pitcher Zack Hess and sophomore outfielder Zach Watson were both named to the 2018 Collegiate Baseball preseason All-America teams on Monday.

Hess was voted to the second team, while Watson was named to the third team. Per LSUSports.net:

Watson, a 2017 Freshman All-America and Freshman All-SEC selection, hit a team-best .317 last season with nine doubles, three triples, nine homers, 37 RBI, 42 runs and 12 stolen bases. He led the Tigers in NCAA Tournament play by batting .333 (16-for-48) in 12 games with one double, five homers, 10 RBI, 12 runs and four steals.

Hess, a 2017 Freshman All-American and a member of the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll, worked the early part of last season as a mid-week starter before making a move to the Tigers’ bullpen on April 4. After becoming a full-time reliever, Hess worked 32.1 innings in 22 appearances and allowed nine earned runs on 19 hits with 18 walks and 48 strikeouts.

Preseason All-American polls are ridiculous! They haven’t done anything yet! Both Watson and Hess had excellent freshman seasons, but that was then, this is now! A lot can happen! Let the season take shape and see how it works out!
