AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas baseball team will be without the services of catcher, DJ Petrinsky for the remainder of the season.
The senior from Magnolia, Texas suffered a torn labrum, which is a rubbery tissue which keeps the ball of a shoulder socket in place.
According to Texas baseball Head Coach David Pierce, Petrinsky will undergo surgery and will miss the rest of the season.
Petrinsky owns a .256 batting average this season through the first 13 games.
Texas is 11-3 overall this season and is ranked in the top 10 in the country. The Longhorns begin a four-game series against Stanford on Thursday in Palo Alto, CA.
The University of Texas will apply for a medical hardship waiver and plans for Petrinsky to return for the 2020 season.
