Oregon pitcher Cole Irvin will undergo surgery, miss 2014 baseball season

Oregon sophomore pitcher Cole Irvin will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the 2014 season baseball season. Todd Miles, Oregon’s Associate Director of Athletic Communications, spoke to head coach George Horton, who said the surgery will take place Monday. Baseball America’s Aaron Fitt first reported the news.

 

Irvin was slotted to be one of Oregon’s main starters this season after his stellar freshman year in 2013, when he tallied a 2.48 ERA and four complete games in 16 starts. He also made the freshman All-American team.

According to Fitt, Horton doesn’t plan on moving Jake Reed back into the starting rotation after Reed made the transition to the bullpen. Tommy Thorpe, Matt Krook and either Porter Clayton or Jordan Spencer are expected to make up the rotation in Irvin’s absence.
