TCU baseball just received some great news.
Ace pitcher Jared Janczak, whose season was cut short after having thoracic outlet surgery, will return for his senior season in 2019.
Janczak, who was selected by the Los Angeles Angels in the 32nd round of the MLB draft on June 6, told coach Jim Schlossnagle of his decision Friday evening.
He also posted the news on Twitter.
"A special thanks to the Angels for the opportunity to be a part of their system, but there's work to be done in Fort Worth," Janczak posted Friday night. "I'm fired up to play one more season in the purple and white! Go frogs!!"
Janczak has been one of the most successful pitchers in TCU's history. He's 17-7 with a 2.56 ERA in 218 career innings. His 2018 season was limited to eight starts because of the injury. He had an 3.00 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 42 innings.
The right-hander will be able to start throwing again this fall and should be ready for the start of the '19 season, Schlossnagle said.
"We are super very excited to welcome Jared back for his senior year," Schlossnagle said. "This is a huge win for TCU and I look forward to watching a healthy Jared Janczak lead us back to Omaha."
