Vanderbilt pitcher transfers to North Carolina

·1 min read

The UNC baseball program has added another player to their 2023 roster this week.

After losing a recruit and a transfer player to the MLB draft, Scott Forbes and his team are ready to add more. And on Friday, they were able to snag a valuable pitcher from the SEC.

Vanderbilt pitcher Nelson Berkwich announced he was leaving the program and has decided to join the Tar Heels. He pitched two seasons at Vanderbilt, posting a 3.03 ERA in 29.2 innings pitched. He made 28 relief appearances in two years and was a valuable piece in the bullpen for the program.

For the Tar Heels, they are getting some much-needed help to their bullpen for the upcoming season. After making it to the Super Regionals last season, Forbes and his team have their eyes on making the College World Series.

Berkwich is currently pitching for the Bourne Braves in the Cape Cod League this Summer.
