JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi pitcher Chris Ellis and Mississippi State pitcher Ross Mitchell are two of the five finalists for this year's C Spire Ferriss Trophy.

Another finalist is MSU reliever Jacob Lindgren, who has a 1.01 ERA and struck out 82 batters over 44 innings. The remaining two finalists are Belhaven pitcher/first baseman Tyler Akins and Ole Miss outfielder Auston Bousfield.

The winner will be announced May 19 at the Hall of Fame.
