Sophomore outfielder Chandler Taylor was named a second-team All-SEC selection, the league office announced on Monday. Taylor was Alabama’s lone representative on the two all-conference teams and the freshman All-SEC team.
Taylor finished the year batting .282, including .295 in SEC play while finishing third in the conference with 16 home runs. He led Alabama with 34 RBIs and 113 total bases. He also led the team with 32 walks, a .601 slugging percentage and was third with a .383 on-base percentage. Taylor also had three outfield assists.
He was named SEC player of the week this season after Alabama’s sweep of Auburn. He was 7 for 14 with three home runs, two doubles, three walks, three RBIs and five runs scored to lead the team in every offensive category.
Taylor was named to the freshman All-SEC team last year. He is eligible to be chosen in June’s MLB draft.
Alabama finished the season 19-29-1 and 5-24-1 in conference play. The Crimson Tide did not qualify for this week’s SEC tournament.
