Clemson baseball coach Monte Lee named his starters for the weekend rotation today.
With Sam Weatherly being named the Friday night guy, that means his command issues have been solved, which was all that was holding him back. A lefty with a power arm, who has filthy stuff, is exactly the kind of guy you want leading your rotation.
This really sets the staff up well. With Mat Clark and Geoffrey Gilbert in the bullpen, that gives the coaches two left handed options to go with in relief behind Davis Sharpe and Spencer Strider on Saturday and Sunday.
That’s after having every right hander in the pen available to go with in relief of Weatherly on Friday.
Opening Day is Friday as Clemson hosts Liberty at 4pm at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
