USC baseball coach Ray Tanner has dismissed sophomore pitcher Ethan Carter from the team for a violation of team rules. The news came down via a press release Tuesday afternoon. The release indicated Tanner will offer no further comment on the dismissal.
Carter, a right hander out of Newport News, VA, appeared in 24 games last season. He was 3-0 with a pair of saves and a 5.46 ERA. He struck out 30 batters in 28 innings. Among his highlights last season was earning the win in relief in a 10-9 Super Regional victory at Coastal Carolina.
