Schlatter and Carlson departed the program with the intent to transfer to another university. Davis will not rejoin the team after committing a violation of team and athletics department policies.

“It’s difficult anytime you lose a player,” said McClure “They were each a key part of our team last season. We appreciate what they have done for the Govs baseball team and wish each of them the best.”

Davis played in 40 games last season, primarily as the Govs designated hitter, and batted .262 with six home runs and 19 RBI.
