Jac Caglianone is having a big season for the Florida Gators, and the first baseman/left-hander was recognized this week as a semifinalist for the John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year Award. The award is given annually to the nation’s top all-around two-way player.

The sophomore leads all semifinalists in home runs (27) and is hitting .351 with a 5-2 record, 4.47 ERA and 63 pitching strikeouts as the Gators’ Sunday starter. He is the lone SEC player to make the semifinalist list while the ACC and Big 12 each have two.

For the season, the Tampa, Florida native holds a .401 on-base percentage and is slugging .817, having totaled 41 extra-base hits, 73 RBI, 58 runs and 2 steals.

Caglianone is coming off of his best SEC start of the season, as he tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball to pick up the win over No. 5 Vanderbilt. Caglianone tied his career highs in both innings pitched and strikeouts (9).
