Pitching rotation set for SELA, Cal Tournament
Ragin’ Cajuns head coach Tony Robichaux has announced his pitching plans for the rest of the week.
Righthander Joe Zimmerman (0-1, 4.91) will get the start tonight against Southeastern La. Zimmerman will be making his first start since opening night. He was bothered by a groin injury, but did make a brief appearance over the weekend against Southern Mississippi.
Taylor Hubbell (3-0, 0.99) will start Friday night against California. Hubbell was the winning pitcher in the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader.
Jordan Nicholson (1-0, 0.82) will get the start Saturday against Cal-Santa Barbara. Nicholson has not pitched since his start against Southern University on March 1. This will be the first weekend start for Nicholson.
T. J. Geith (0-1, 9.82) was scheduled to be the starter last night against Northwestern State, but that game was postponed because in inclimate weather. Geith will be making his third weekend start of the year. He was scheduled to pitch the third game of the Southern Miss series, but that, too, was rained out.
The movement of Nicholson into the rotation this weekend means that Joey Satriano will move back to his role a year ago as a late inning relief specialist for the Cajuns, giving them a 1-2 punch with Matt Hicks.
