First-team preseason All-America righthander Brett Hunter did not pitch for Pepperdine in a four-game sweep of Columbia this weekend, but Waves coach Steve Rodriguez said it’s nothing serious.
"Hunter has been dealing with a nasty blister and some soreness in his forearm because of it, so we decided to give him as much rest as needed so we don’t have to deal with it anymore," Rodriguez wrote in an e-mail. "He tried to chief it out but it just became a nagging issue. He doesn’t like me right now for shutting him down, but in the long run it is for the best."
As for the other West Coast righthander with first round aspirations who was sidelined this weekend, it looks like California ace Tyson Ross could be back next weekend against Loyola Marymount.
"He’ll pitch for us next weekend," Bears coach Dave Esquer told the Daily Californian. "It’s not a shoulder (injury), it’s not an elbow (injury), just a little muscle strain, a little tightness. He’ll do fine and we expect him to take his turn next Friday."
