LSU’s Kramer Robertson was named to the Brooks Wallace Award watch list, given annually to college baseball’s best shortstop.
Former Tigers shortstop Alex Bregman — the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 MLB Draft — won the award in 2013.
Robertson, a junior, began the season at second base before moving to shortstop eight games into LSU’s season, taking over for Cole Freeman, who moved to second base.
He’s made just six errors in 128 chances at shortstop, good for a .953 fielding percentage as he enjoys the best offensive season of his collegiate career. Robertson’s hitting .320, but has a team-leading .384 average in Southeastern Conference play, adding a .389 clip with runners in scoring position.
The award will be presented on July 2 in Lubbock, Texas.
