Everyone around the team had a really bad feeling about this when it happened. But because it was in the middle of the College World Series, there was enough of a distraction to get people's minds off it.

Well now there are no distractions, and the LSU Baseball team, and their fans, need to face the terrible news surrounding pitcher Eric Walker, and the LSU Pitching rotation for next season. Here's more from the Louisiana Radio Network:

"LSU has received bad news on right-handed pitcher Eric Walker. The promising hurler will miss the 2018 season as he’ll need Tommy John Surgery to repair a torn ligament in his throwing elbow.

Walker first complained of discomfort in his forearm before the College World Series. He tried to pitch in a game in Omaha, but left in the third inning, because he felt the pain reach his elbow. 

Because of Walker’s injury and Jared Poche and Alex Lange moving on to professional baseball, the Tigers will have three new weekend starters. Moran says Zack Hess, Caleb Gilbert, Todd Peterson and incoming freshman Nick Storz are the most likely candidates."
