FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — University of Arkansas pitcher Trey Killian says he left the USA Baseball Collegiate National team early because of arm soreness.
Killian said during a news conference Thursday that the soreness is not severe and he believes it is tightness due to fatigue.
Killian was 1-1 in three games for Team USA — which was coached by Razorbacks coach Dave Van Horn.
Van Horn says doctors believe Killian simply needs rest.
Killian went 4-9 with a 2.30 earned run average in 14 starts last season for Arkansas.
Team USA went 18-8-1 in games in both the U.S. and Europe and returned to the United States on Monday.
