The LSU Tigers may have to do without a talented arm for the the entire 2019 college baseball season.


A native of Brooklyn, New York, Storz, who had surgery on a bone spur in his throwing shoulder last fall, had surgery on the lat muscle underneath his throwing shoulder last week.

The 6-foot-6, 257-pound Storz, who was named a 2017 MaxPreps all-American, as well as a 2016 Perfect Game all-American, while at Poly Prep Country Day High School, pitched in only three innings for LSU in 2018, allowing no runs on one hit.

Storz was taken in the 31st-round of the 2017 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft by the Detroit Tigers.
