Florida’s weekend rotation took a hit last week when it was announced that sophomore righthander Tommy Toledo would have arthroscopic shoulder surgery and miss all of the 2009 season. Toledo made 11 starts as a freshman this spring, going 4-4, 4.40 in 59 innings. An unsigned third-round pick of the Padres in the 2007 draft, Toledo would have competed for Florida’s Friday starter job.
Clearly Toledo’s loss is a blow to the Gators, but they’ve got enough pitching depth to cover it. Junior righty Billy Bullock and seniors Stephen Locke and Patrick Keating all made double-digit starts a year ago, and freshman lefthander Nick Maronde will be a star, perhaps even right away. Freshman righty Anthony Desclafani also could be capable of starting on weekends in the spring.
