Zeigler to leave

Freshman pitcher Randy Zeigler said today he plans to transfer to Bossier Parish Community College. Zeigler has already been given his release by LSU coach Paul Mainieri.

Zeigler blew out his elbow prior to what would have been his first career start against Grambling. He needed Tommy John surgery and wouldn't be able to pitch off a mound until January or February at the earliest.

He said he's transferring to do his rehab closer to his Shreveport-Bossier City home.

How this affects LSU next year is anyone's guess. Because of the surgery, he wasn't going to be counted on -- particularly early in the year. But left-handed relief fell to Chad Jones this year after Zeigler's injury. There's no guarantee Jones or a Jones-like pitcher will be there next year.
