Senior right-handed pitcher Forrest Koumas will have Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm and miss the 2014 season.
Koumas (0-0, 8.35 ERA) pitched 10 games this past season. He was inactive for the Super Regional against North Carolina after having a pin removed from the elbow of his right arm.
He battled a sore right elbow during the 2012 season and had surgery on it during last year's offseason.
A date for the upcoming Tommy John surgery is not yet known. Koumas will have one year of eligibility after he recovers.
Never miss a local story.
Koumas, from Lugoff-Elgin High, was 6-1 in 12 starts with a 2.96 ERA during his freshman campaign in 2011.
