Arkansas pitcher Dylan Carter suffers season-ending injury

The injury bug has struck Arkansas baseball yet again. The Diamond Hogs lost another important bullpen piece when RHP Dylan Carter suffered a season-ending UCL tear.

The sophomore from Bentonville shared the heartbreaking news to Twitter with a short statement.

“Razorback Nation: It is with a heavy heart that I announce my 2023 season has come to an end due to a UCL tear,” Carter’s announcement read. “This season has been nothing short of amazing and our teams season isn’t over yet. I will be the best teammate and supporter as we finish up the season and begin our run to Omaha. #31”

Carter was injured in last Thursday’s series-opening win over Texas A&M after just one inning of relief work. He’s been stellar this season, having recorded a 6-0 record, 3.65 ERA and two saves across 37 innings pitched this season. Carter has walked 11 batters, struck out 26 and opponents are batting .264 against him.

This is third season-ending injury suffered by an Arkansas pitcher. Jaxon Wiggins and Koty Frank are both out with UCL injuries that required Tommy John surgery, just as Carter will need.
