LSU closer Hunter Newman out indefinitely with a back injury
Southeastern Conference baseball games just mean more, and LSU will begin the pivotal 30-game league grind this weekend without its veteran closer.
Hunter Newman will miss LSU’s SEC opening series against Georgia this weekend and is out indefinitely with a lower back injury, LSU coach Paul Mainieri announced Thursday. The Tigers host the Bulldogs for a three-game series set.
“He’s going to be out a while,” Mainieri said. “We don’t know how long. It could be two weeks, it could be six weeks; we’re not really sure yet. We’re going to see how it is in a week and we’ll reassess the situation at that point.”
