WVU Right-Hander Carter Lyles Announces Transfer to Marshall



Right-handed pitcher Carter Lyles will continue his college baseball career in West Virginia, but he will not be wearing the gold and blue any longer. On Friday, the rising junior announced that he will be transferring from WVU to Marshall.

An in-state product, Lyles is a native of Danville, WV and played at Scott High School. In two seasons with WVU, he made 10 appearances with a 12.80 ERA. He pitched 5 1/3 innings last season, allowing 10 hits and five runs, four earned. He struck out five and walked five.

Lyles is the third player to transfer away from WVU this week, joining infielders Matt McCormick and Tyler Doanes. WVU has also added a couple of pitchers via transfer this summer. Former Navy pitcher Trey Braithwaite and former Pitt pitcher Chase Smith will both join the Mountaineers for next season.
