Big loss for the Tigers. The freshman came on strong at the end of last season and was one of the leading candidates for that third spot in the weekend rotation. He will redshirt this season.
Sophomore catcher Drew Donathan, freshman righthander Carter Raffield and sophomore righty Spencer Strider will all miss the 2019 season due to injury. Donathan suffered a leg injury, while Raffield and Strider both suffered arm injuries. All three plan to redshirt, rehabilitate and return to the field with the Tigers in the 2020 season.
