Injuries Continue To Cut Down The LSU Pitching Staff

(Baton Rouge-AP) -- Brian Wilson, L-S-U's starting pitcher for its first Southeastern Conference series-opening games this year, travels to Birmingham, Alabama, today to find out whether he needs
elbow surgery.

Either way, L-S-U assistant trainer Shawn Eddy says Wilson's season is over.

The junior right-hander from Londonderry, New Hampshire, is eligible to apply to the N-C-A-A for a medical redshirt and return to L-S-U as a junior in 2004. He's been told he could be back to
100 percent arm strength in about ten months if he has surgery.

Unless a pro team takes a chance on Wilson in the June draft, he could be back next season in the same L-S-U starting rotation as two-time All-S-E-C pitcher Lane Mestepey who is out this season
after shoulder surgery in the offseason.

Wilson becomes the ninth player on L-S-U's roster who is out for the rest of the season because of an injury. Of the nine, six are pitchers. The others are catcher Dustin Weaver (shoulder),
infielder Matt Horwath (shoulder) and first baseman Eric Wiethorn (knee).

If Wilson has surgery, the procedure will be performed Thursday morning.

Wilson complained of soreness in his elbow and shoulder March 29th after he pitched the day before at Alabama. He threw 139 pitches in a four-to-two loss. He says his arm went numb and the
pain started the next day.
