Texas Tech baseball defeated a starting pitcher for the Oklahoma State series

Texas Tech baseball defeated a starting pitcher for the Oklahoma State series


Texas Tech baseball pitcher Mac Heuer, who pulled out of his start against Oklahoma on Sunday with latissimus-dorsi muscle irritation, will not pitch in the Red Raiders’ Big 12 series at No. 20 Oklahoma State this weekend, Tech coach Tim Tadlock said Wednesday .

Tadlock said he had no further update on Heuer’s status other than he won’t pitch this weekend.

Tech (30-20, 12-15 in the Big 12) plays road games against Oklahoma State (32-16, 15-9) at 6 p.m. Friday, 6 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at O’Brate Stadium in Stillwater, Okla.

Lefthander Ryan Free (5-1, 4.79 earned run average) and righthander Kyle Robinson (4-6, 5.09) will make their usual starts Friday and Saturday, Tadlock said. The Red Raiders’ Sunday starter is yet to be determined.

Heuer (4-5, 5.94) has made 10 starts this season, second most on the staff.

In other developments, Tadlock said left-handed pitcher Taber Fast is unlikely to pitch again this spring. The news is better about Trendan Parish. The junior righthander threw a bullpen on Tuesday, Tadlock said, is making progress without setbacks and could return during the tournament.

“A few weeks,” Tadlock said. “Maybe you can put him on the field next week.”

Zane Petty, Fast and Parish have all been sidelined with arm issues. Fast last pitched on March 13, Petty on March 19 and Parish on April 1. Petty is also out for the season.
