Mississippi State baseball

With Mississippi State’s 2019 baseball season now in the rearview mirror, several Bulldogs are saying goodbye to the program.

Seniors, drafted players and some guys who may seek opportunities elsewhere have taken to social media in recent days to bid adieu to MSU.

Most of these departures were expected, but the posts did shed light on some decisions from players who could’ve returned to Mississippi State in 2020.

Among those are catcher Dustin Skelton and pitchers Colby White and Trysten Barlow. Skelton was taken in the 18th round of the Major League Baseball Draft by the Miami Marlins earlier this month. White was picked in the sixth round by Tampa Bay while Barlow went in the 16th round to the Colorado Rockies. All three players had one year of eligibility remaining if they wanted to return to Starkville, but it appears none will.
