University of Georgia junior pitcher/first baseman will miss the first nine games of the 2014 season due to a violation of team rules, head coach Scott Stricklin announced Wednesday.

 

Walsh, a native of Duluth, Ga., is projected to be a two-way player again for the Bulldogs this season. Last year on the mound, he went 2-4 with three saves and a 3.35 ERA in 17 games including five starts. Also, he appeared in 47 games as a position player with 44 starts and batted .297 with three home runs and 26 RBI.

 

Georgia opens the season Feb. 14 at Foley Field against Georgia Southern.
