Southeastern Conference coaches have picked Vanderbilt to win the league's baseball title again this season.
The Commodores have won four SEC titles. They return eight position players and four pitchers from last season, when they also won the league tournament and earned the No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
Despite the high seeding and home to a regional, the Commodores lost 4-3 to Michigan in the regional finals.
Mississippi was picked to finish second behind Vanderbilt in the preseason poll. South Carolina, Mississippi State and Kentucky rounded out the top five.
