BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Kentucky's A.J. Reed is the Southeastern Conference baseball player of the year.

SEC coaches also selected LSU's Aaron Nola as the top pitcher for the second straight season and Florida's Kevin O'Sullivan as coach of the year in awards released Tuesday. Florida's Logan Shore was named the league's top freshman while Mississippi State's Seth Heck is scholar-athlete of the year.

O'Sullivan led the Gators to their third SEC title in seven seasons, matching Dave Fuller (1948-75) for most in school history.

Reed batted .351 with a league-high 23 home runs and 70 RBIs. Also a pitcher, he led the league with 11 wins and posted a 2.10 ERA.

Nola was 10-1 and led the SEC with a 1.49 ERA and 127 strikeouts. Shore was 7-3 with a 1.99 ERA.
