The transfer portal officially opened for baseball on Monday and it didn’t take long for one Tennessee pitcher to enter.

Left-handed pitcher Wyatt Evans entered the transfer portal on Monday, 247sports Ben McKee first reported and a Tennessee spokesperson confirmed to RTI.

Evans had a Benjamin Button career at Tennessee. He was a promising arm as a freshman in 2022, striking out 22 batters and posting a 2.25 ERA in 16 innings pitched. After losing a number of left-handed pitchers following the 2022 season, Evans could have stepped into a larger role in 2023. However, ongoing arm injuries kept the sophomore from ever pitching and led to him redshirting.

The Greenville, South Carolina native struggled this fall coming back from the injury and didn’t make the active roster this season. Evans was not with the team throughout the season and him entering the transfer portal was no surprise.

After not having many reliable left-handed a season ago, Tennessee had a number emerge for them this season including Kirby Connell, Zander Sechrist, Chris Stamos and Andrew Behnke. Those emergences made Evans’ absence less meaningful.

Tennessee baseball’s season marches on after winning a regional for a fourth straight season. The Vols host the Knoxville Super Regional against the winner of Monday afternoon’s East Carolina-Evansville game.
