Kevin Kopps out with TJ

Kopps needed Tommy John surgery about a week ago. That’s a blow to the Arkansas bullpen: http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2017 … ommy-john/

Ouch!

Unlike last year, the bullpen is a place where Arkansas can withstand a season-ending injury. I think there are some really good freshmen who will work their way into playing time in short order.

What you lose with Kopps is a good closer or set-up man. His cutter was tough on hitters the first time through. He typically was reliable for 2-3 solid innings.
