Baseball America ranked the Miami Hurricanes baseball team 16th in its annual preseason rankings Monday, the squad's highest preseason ranking since 2010.

Miami finished last season with a record of 37-25 and is one of six teams ranked in the ACC by Baseball America that includes Virginia at No. 1, NC State No. 5, Florida State, No. 6, Clemson No. 13, and North Carolina No. 17.

The Hurricanes will look to improve off last season as they return their entire starting rotation from 2013 that includes All-American left-hander Bryan Radziewski and USA Baseball Collegiate National Team member Chris Diaz. Diaz finished 2013 with an ERA of 1.64 while Radziewski posted an ERA of 1.78, both in the top three of the ACC, and the duo combined to finish with a record of 16-8 in 30 starts.

Radziewski and pitcher Javi Salas were both selected in the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft but decided to return to Coral Gables for another season. Miami returns seven starters in all, including Freshman All-American David Thompson, who hit six home runs and drove in 46 RBI a season ago.

Miami opens its 2014 schedule on Feb. 14 at Mark Light Field with a three-game series against Maine and starts ACC play at home against Florida State on Feb. 28. The Hurricanes are attempting to make the postseason for the 42nd consecutive year, a streak that goes all the way back to 1972.
