South Carolina and LSU appear to be in line for first-round byes in the 2012 SEC baseball tournament.

The 2012 SEC Baseball tournament is set to begin on Tuesday, May 22, at Hoover Park in Alabama. As things currently stand, it looks like powerhouses South Carolina and LSU are in line for the two top seeds -- which would mean a first-round bye in the tournament for both of them.

10 SEC teams will make the tournament, and it's almost a certainty as to which 10 teams will qualify. Tennessee and Alabama currently sit at the bottom of the SEC standings by a wide margin, and neither program figures to qualify for the tournament.

Consequently, it currently appears that South Carolina and LSU will have the first-round off, while Florida, Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Ole Miss and Auburn figure to round out the rest of the field. If the season ended today, it appears that Florida would take on Auburn, Kentucky would take on Ole Miss, Arkansas would take on Georgia and Mississippi State would take on Vandy.

Things can certainly still change over the weekend, though, so be sure to check back when the official seedings and bracket are announced.
