LSU Southpaw Ziegler Out for Year

Thursday, April 9, 2009 - 10:47pm
LSU left handed pitcher Randy Ziegler is done for the season. Calvary Baptist’s Rodney Traweek, Ziegler’s high school coach, confirmed to Shreveport NBC affiliate KTAL that he will have Tommy John surgery on April 24th. Ziegler tore a ligament in his elbow warming up for Wednesday night's game against Grambling. So the Tigers are left with 13 healthy pitchers — and only two of them are lefties. LSU is in Tuscaloosa for three games this weekend. The first is Friday night at 6:30.
