According to Jon Perez, the broadcaster for the Cape Cod League Cotuit Kettleers, Mississippi State sophomore-to-be lefthanded pitcher Jared Padgett "had been released" by Cotuit due "to a sore arm."
In 5 apperances for the Cape Cod League team this summer, Padgett had a 0-0 record with 1 save and a 0.93 ERA. He had pitched 9.2 innings, allowing 8 hits and 3 walks while striking out 9.
According to Missississippi State head coach John Cohen, "we aren't sure what is causing the soreness in Jared's arm. He will have an MRI to determine it."
As a freshman at Mississippi State, Padgett appeared in 4 games, recording a 0-0 record with a 3.86 ERA.
