We had our annual fall ball interviews with Monte Lee, Kier Meredith, Mat Clark and new assistant coach Jared Broughton. Returning starter Mat Clark took the summer off from baseball at the instructions of Monte and the staff in order to preserve his arm after a long season. Kier Meredith missed last season with a leg injury and will receive a medical redshirt. He is finally healthy and believes he is in the best spot since arriving as a freshman. Starting pitcher Spencer Strider will spend the fall rehabbing from the shoulder surgery he had last spring and should be ready to make his return in February. Volunteer Assistant Jared Broughton is replacing Greg Starbuck, who took a job as assistant coach at UNC Greensboro. Broughton is a base-running specialist, who will have a nice hand with which to work now that he's with the Tigers, who have abundant speed throughout the lineup that includes Kier Meredith and Sam Hall.
