STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State confirmed Tuesday that pitcher Cole Marsh is no longer a member of the school's baseball team.
MSU practiced in the fall with 38 players on the roster. It can only have 35 on the team during the season, meaning two more players from the fall must be removed from the roster.
Marsh, a Neville, Louisiana, product, was a pickup from Mississippi Delta Community College. The right-hander pitched nine times in MSU's run to the College World Series, but none in the postseason. In two starts, he earned a victory against New Mexico State and a no-decision against Southeastern Louisiana. Marsh ended his lone season as a Bulldog with a 4.70 earned run average in 15 1/3 innings. He struck out eight.
MSU will begin the first season of the Chris Lemonis era on Feb. 15 with a three-game home series against Youngstown State. Fifteen of MSU's first 18 games of 2019 will be at Dudy Noble Field.
