TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida State pitcher Mike Compton will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a damaged ligament in his right elbow and miss the 2013 season.
News of Comptons surgery comes two weeks before the Seminoles open the 2013 campaign on February 15 with a three-game series against the University of Rhode Island.
The Missouri native posted a 12-2 record with a 2.87 ERA in 18 starts during his first season at Florida State in 2012.
Compton ended the season tied for the second most wins in the nation and led all freshmen in the category. He was the first 10-game winner in the ACC and finished the season as the only player to reach double-digit victories in the league.
He ended his freshman season with 64 strikeouts in 91.0 innings of work while holding opponents to a .260 batting average. Compton allowed two earned runs or less in 16 of his 18 starts, while gave up no runs three times.
It was disappointing for all of us to hear the news regarding Mike Compton, head coach Mike Martin said. He will definitely be missed but we also see this as an opportunity for someone else to step in and fill the No. 2 spot in the rotation.
