Clemson baseball checked in at No. 14 in the preseason Baseball America rankings on Monday, which was the highest of the major preseason college baseball polls.

Vanderbilt leads the poll, while UNC (5), Florida State (6) and Louisville (11) join Clemson from the ACC in the top-15.

Preseason All-American shortstop Logan Davidson is one of four regular returners in the lineup back, joining second baseman Jordan Greene, designated hitter/utility player Grayson Byrd and catcher Kyle Wilkie. The Tigers are having to replace All-American outfielder Seth Beer in the lineup and Davidson is Clemson's returning leader in RBIs (46), runs (60), hits (73), doubles (18), home runs (15) and stolen bases (10).

In the rotation, four with starting experience are back in right-handers Brooks Crawford and Spencer Strider and left-handers Jacob Hennessy and Sam Weatherly.

Clemson went 47-16 last season and hosted a home NCAA regional. Monte Lee begins his fourth season with the program on Feb. 15 at home versus South Alabama (4 p.m.).

The Tigers were ranked No. 24 in the preseason polls for Perfect Game and D1Baseball.

Clemson hosts a fan fest on Feb. 9 starting at 1:30 p.m. at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
