Public and common knowledge is Jesse Baker until next year and Zach Galm has left the team for unknown reasons. Obviously Baker was expected but Galm wasn't and I expected him to be a contributor this year. Since I don't know if the rest are public I won't use names. I will say two Seniors one pitcher and one big bat from last year are out. I believe three other pitchers and possibly another outfielder from last year that was a good bat and was expected to do big things this year. The only good I see in this is the 2017 pitching staff if healthy will be deep and the outfield will be one of the tops in the country. Lets hope the young arms are ready this year!!! Digi may know more info and if names can be released.
Are all these injured guys supposedly out for the season? If they're only out for the beginning of the season, but are healthy for conference play, it's not quite as bad. Then again, if they are out for the season, or the majority of the season, couldn't we red-shirt them? That would make us pretty damn solid for 2017.
None of this is "common knowledge" for me btw, as this is the first I've heard of all of this.
I didn't know Baker was out this year
heard from a parent that 2 freshman have been kicked off the team now as well...... are we even going to have a team this year?
Kevin Markham is one of the players hurt. He was our best bat at the beginning of last season.
