LSU baseball: Pitcher Cale Lansville to transfer to San Jacinto College

BATON ROUGE - LSU baseball right-handed pitcher Cale Lansville is transferring to San Jacinto College for the 2023 season, Lansville confirmed on Twitter.

At 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, Lansville surrendered five earned runs in six innings pitched last season as a freshman. His strongest outing came against Louisiana Tech, surrendering just one walk and allowing no runs in two innings pitched.

Lansville is also no longer on the Tigers' 2023 roster. An LSU spokesperson confirmed to The Advertiser on Tuesday that he was transferring from the program.

Perfect Game pegged Lansville as the No. 85 player and No. 27 right-handed pitcher in the country coming out of Thunder Ridge High School in Colorado.

LSU beefed up its pitching staff over the 2022 offseason. The Tigers added three starters from the transfer portal, including Air Force two-way player Paul Skenes, UCLA transfer Thatcher Hurd and Vanderbilt transfer Christian Little.

LSU also brought in a strong class of freshman and junior college arms, most notably three top 300 MLB Draft prospects in Micah Bucknam, Chase Shores, Aiden Moffett and Jaden Noot, according to ESPN.

The Tigers begin their season on Feb. 17 against Western Michigan.
