STORRS, Conn. -- UConn baseball tri-captain and American Athletic Conference Preseason Co-Pitcher of the Year Carson Cross (Brentwood, N.H.) will require shoulder surgery and miss the 2014 season. Coach Jim Penders made the announcement on Monday (Feb. 3).
Cross, a redshirt-junior, will have one year of eligibility remaining following the season. His surgery will be performed at a later date by Dr. James Andrews.
The UConn hurler went 9-5 with a 2.44 ERA in 2013, finishing second in the BIG EAST with 86 strikeouts in his 110.2 innings of work. Following the season, Cross was named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team.
The Huskies open the 2014 season on Feb. 14 with a trip to Port Charlotte, Fla. and a match-up with Ohio State in the Snowbird Classic.
