In the spirit of Opening Day today I was wondering who all in the SEC have players that are currently on a big league roster.

Off the top of my head I know that SC has 4 active players on MLB rosters.

Alabama (5):
Alex Avila (C, Detroit Tigers)
Tommy Hunter (RHP, Baltimore Orioles)
Wade LeBlanc (LHP, Miami Marlins)
David Robertson (RHP, New York Yankees)
Josh Rutledge (INF, Colorado Rockies)

Arkansas (5):
Drew Smyly - Detroit Tigers
Craig Gentry - Texas Rangers
Logan Forsythe - San Diego Padres
Cliff Lee - Philadelphia Phillies
Eric Henske - Arizona Diamondbacks

Auburn (3):
Tim Hudson - Braves
David Ross - Red Sox
Josh Donaldson - Athletics

Florida (4):
Mark Ellis - Dodgers
Darren O'Day - Orioles
Paco Rodriguez - Dodgers
David Ross - Red Sox

Georgia (4):
Gordon Beckham - White Sox
Mitchell Boggs - Cardinals
Jeff Keppinger - White Sox
Josh Fields - Astros

Kentucky (3):
Joe Blanton - Angels
Collin Cowgill - Mets
Scott Downs - Angels

LSU (2):
41 Charlie Furbush Seattle Mariners Pitcher
2 Aaron Hill Arizona Diamondbacks Infielder

Ole Miss (4):
Zach Cozart - Cincinnati SS
Lance Lynn - St. Louis SP
Chris Coghlan - Miami LF
Seth Smith - Oakland LF

Miss St (4):
Paul Maholm LHP - Atlanta Braves
Jonathan Papelbon RHP - Philadelpia Phillies
Mitch Moreland 1B - Texas Rangers
Tyler Moore 1B/OF - Washington Nationals

Missouri (4):
Ian Kinsler - Rangers
Aaron Crow - Royals
Max Scherzer - Tigers
Shaun Marcum - Mets

South Carolina (5):
Jackie Bradley Jr. - Boston Red Sox
Justin Smoak - Seattle Mariners
Brian Roberts - Baltimore Orioles
Steve Pearce - Baltimore Orioles
James Darnell - San Diego Padres

Tennessee (5):
RA Dickey - Blue Jays
Todd Helton - Rockies
Chase Headley - Padres
JP Arencibia - Blue Jays
Luke Hochevar - Royals

A&M (2):
Cliff Pennington SS Diamondbacks

Should do some research on the thread title and OP next time.

Dallas Keuchel



Got sent to the minors 10 days ago.

Don't believe he is with the Astros currently, but he'll get called up again at some point. Had an awful, awful spring.
