    Southern Mississippi reached regionals (and then advanced to super regionals) despite an injury to senior shortstop Brian Dozier, the team leader who went down in April with a broken clavicle. He was more of a solid college shortstop than a big pro prospect and fits better at second base, as a fringy runner with a fringe arm.
