USC baseball coach Chad Holbrook is parting ways with senior outfielder Graham Saiko. Tuesday morning it was reported Saiko was suspended from the Gamecock baseball team indefinitely and that his return was unlikely. By Tuesday afternoon Holbrook made those reports official.
“Graham is a terrific young man that has done great things both on the field and in the classroom,” Holbrook said. “At this time, Graham and I have mutually agreed that it is in his best interest to focus his attention on obtaining his degree from the University of South Carolina. We certainly appreciate all Graham has given to our baseball program and we wish him well in his future endeavors.”
Saiko was a key contributor for USC last season. He started 56 games, hitting .263 with 29 RBI and two homer runs. He also stole 12 bases.
