Texas A&M HC Jim Schlossnagle provides early update on Shane Sdao


Sophomore left-handed pitcher Shane Sdao drew the nod to start Game 2 against the Oregon Ducks with a chance to help Texas A&M advance to the College World Series.

However, his day ended after 11 pitches when he felt discomfort in his throwing arm. Following a visit to the mound by coach Jim Schlossnagle and the trainer, Sdao was replaced by Brad Rudis.

The Aggies rallied late in Sdao’s absence to beat Oregon and punch their ticket to Ohama. There was a welcome visual at the end of the game when we saw Sdao and Ryan Targac help Braden Montgomery onto the field, giving us some indication Sdao’s injury might not be as bad as first thought.

If that photo didn’t at least give fans a sigh of relief, coach Schlossnagle reported the pitcher passed some initial physical tests on his arm. They wanted to be extremely careful with him. He is scheduled to have an MRI sometime in the next week.
