Carmen Benedetti returns as one of Michigan’s top talents on the mound and at the plate.

The Wolverines, ranked 15th according to Baseball America’s preseason rankings, have taken the offseason as an opportunity to get healthy and stronger in an attempt to build on last year’s impressive ending.

Senior left-hander Evan Hill finished with a 1.80 ERA in the Cape Cod Baseball League this summer.

The Wolverines, who are ranked as the No. 15 team in the nation according to Baseball America, are looking to improve on the mound after finishing 79th in Division I with a 3.81 team-earned run average last season.
