South Carolina right-hander Cody Mincey was reinstated to the baseball team’s fall practices Monday.
The senior reliever was suspended last month for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
At the time, the suspension was indefinite, but USC coach Chad Holbrook decided to allow Mincey to return to practice.
Holbrook noted that Mincey’s status for the spring season will be reevaluated at the end of the fall semester. The coach added that there is no guarantee that Mincey will be back.
“He’s on a tight leash,” Holbrook said.
In his first season with the Gamecocks in 2014, Mincey, a Hartsville native who originally attended Spartanburg Methodist College, pitched very well as the set-up man out of the bullpen. He posted a 5-0 record with a 1.04 ERA in 34 2/3 innings.
