Sophomore pitcher Kyle Pauly confirms plans to transfer

By Marissa Novel, @MarissaNovelDE

Sophomore left-handed pitcher Kyle Pauly confirmed he will be transferring, but declined to make an official comment Wednesday. 

Pauly sat most of this season out with an arm injury. 

Last year, he was named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American and was the first Saluki freshman to earn All-Missouri Valley Conference first or second team honors since 2007.


Pauly led the team with 22 relief appearances, which tied him for 12th most in the MVC. He appeared eight times in conference games, the most on the team. 

He led the MVC with a 0.83 ERA and .179 opponents average in conference play, while leading the team with a 1.43 overall ERA and .164 opponents average.

Last April at Illinois State University, Pauly threw a career-high 4.1 innings. He recorded a season-high five strikeouts during the same game tied the mark less than a month later against Wichita State University.

He had a 19.1-innning scoreless streak from March 29, 2014 to April 25, 2014, which was the team’s best.
