Alabama sophomore pitcher and Preseason First Team All-American Connor Prielipp will undergo Tommy John surgery and will miss the remainder of the baseball season and the entire 2022 season according to D1 Baseball's Kendall Rogers. Prielipp only appeared in three games in 2021 for Alabama, leaving a big hole in the Crimson Tide's rotation this year.
Alabama Crimson Tide baseball ace pitcher Connor Prielipp is set to return to the mound this Saturday in the Tide’s home series against Auburn according to Kendall Rogers. Prielipp has been out since the opening game on February 19thdue to an undisclosed medical condition.
The Tide will once again be without ace pitcher Connor Prielipp as the team takes on Tennessee in a home series this weekend. Bama baseball is currently 1-5 in SEC play and has lost six games straight. Prielipp pitched the opening game on February 19th with a 0.00 ERA in 5 innings and has not played a single game since.
It is undeniable that the SEC is without a doubt the best conference in college baseball right now. With the top 3 ranked teams in the country in Vanderbilt, Arkansas, and Ole Miss, as well as Tennessee and Mississippi State in the top 10, the road was never going to be easy for the young Alabama team.
