This is normally not the kind of news you hear from a Ray Tanner coached baseballl team but the Gamecocks had to dismiss one of their pitchers for a violation of team rules. RHP Ethan Carter has been dismissed according to the university for the violation but no news on what exactly happened for Carter to be removed.

TheBigSpur.com is reporting the dismissal and you can find the story here on their website. They projected Carter as a top candidate for a weekend spot in the rotation as he is one of the top returning right-handed pitchers who was expected to have an increased role for USC.
