10. LHP Hagen Smith (Arkansas)

last week's ranking: 10

While he was not as dominant this past weekend as we have seen, Hagen Smith continues to look like arguably the best pitcher in the country. On Thursday, he went 6 innings while allowing 2 runs. He struck out 11 batters while walking 4 and allowing 4 hits.

Now for the season, Smith has a 6-0 record, a 1.76 ERA (3rd in the SEC, and 1st among starters), an SEC-leading 83 K's, 14 BB, and opponents are hitting just .144 against him (which also leads the conference) across 41 innings in 8 starts. Smith and the Razorbacks will take on Alabama this weekend.

9. OF TJ McCants (Alabama)

last week's ranking: 8

McCants struggled last week (going 2/18 with one HR, one RBI, and one run), as he drops a spot in the Power Rankings.

Now on the year, McCants has a .312/.385/.674 slash-line (1.059 OPS) with 12 HR, 12 doubles (T-3rd in SEC), one triple, 10 SB, 36 RBI, and 28 runs. The Tide will face Arkansas this weekend.
