Jared Poche to return to LSU for senior year
BATON ROUGE - LSU pitcher Jared Poche has tweeted a message that says he’ll return to the university for his senior season to hopefully guide the Tigers to a National Championship.
In the text, Poche politely notes that he has opted to end negotiations with the MLB’s San Diego Padres after he was selected in the 14th round of the 2016 draft. He was originally expected to go in the first 10 rounds.
The message reads:
Poche was an All-American in his freshman year. He has the second most all-time career wins of any LSU pitcher and will be able to overtake Scott Schultz’s number one spot now that he is returning for a final season on the mound.
Paired with LSU’s Alex Lange, the Tigers will have two pieces of their arsenal they will surely need as they aim their sights at conquering the NCAA.
