Tigers lefty will move on from the baseball program
LHP Justin Wrobleski is leaving the Clemson baseball program and will play next season at a junior college in Florida. He will transfer to State College of Florida, located near Sarasota.
Wrobleski started the season as the number three starter in the Tigers rotation, but could only hold onto the spot for three weeks. After a solid debut start vs South Alabama, the freshman’s next two outings were rough. His final start came against UofSC in Columbia, in a 14-3 loss in which he failed to make it out of the first inning.
Wrobleski was then used in relief for the remainder of the season, before being shut down in late April. In all he made 10 appearances (3 starts) and finished 0-2 with an ERA of 10.38, while opponents hit over .300 against him.
Watching Wrobleski pitch, it’s clear he’s got the stuff to be successful on the D1 level. However, like we see so often with freshman pitchers, he hadn’t mastered the command that’s needed to pitch on this level.
A change in scenery could be exactly what the young kid needs. With some of the talented arms the Tigers just brought in with their recent recruiting class, it’s possible Wrobleski could’ve gotten lost in the shuffle in future seasons. Good luck to the young man, wherever his future takes him.
