Auburn, Ala.--Auburn sophomore infielder Tannon Snow, who has yet to play in a game this season, is back home in Chino Hills, Calif., where she is undergoing treatment for an illness that has kept her sidelined.
Auburn coach Clint Myers said on Wednesday afternoon that AU will have a formal announcement on Snow's situation on Monday or Tuesday. "Right now it is the same thing," he said. "She is still in school. I talked to Tannon 20 or 30 minutes ago and they are preparing a statement. She is in California and she has been seeing doctors.
"She has changed medications and they have a pretty good idea of whatever is wrong with her," Myers noted. "Now they are setting a course of action on how they are going to attack.
“Tannon will be back," he added. "Her and her sister (Taylon) will play here next year. Everybody is excited about that. It is just a question of where she is right now.”
A transfer from the University of Washington, Snow performed well in fall workouts and was challenging for a starting role at either first base or as a designated hitter.
Her sister, Taylon, a high school senior and a three-time All-American middle infielder, has signed to play for the Tigers and is expected to be a member of the 2018 Auburn team.
Auburn, which is 14-2 and ranked No. 2 nationally, returns to action with a 6 p.m. home game on Thursday vs. Liberty.
