The right-hander has been equally impressive as a starter and a reliever. In five starts, Hill is 3-0 with a 1.52 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 29.2 innings. In 11 relief appearances, he is 2-0 with one save, a 1.69 ERA, 15 strikeouts and a 0.98 WHIP over 21.1 innings.

In SEC games, Hill is 2-0 with a 2.35 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 23.0 innings. He picked up wins in his only two league starts, victories each of the last Friday’s against Georgia and Mississippi State.

The award, sponsored by Diamond, will be presented on July 2 in Lubbock as part of the annual Night of Champions event.
