After the midway point in the 2012 SEC college baseball schedule teams are still tinkering with their weekend rotation looking for the right matchups down the back stretch of the season.
The Arkansas Razorbacks switched up their Friday starter last weekend against Ole Miss starting Brandon Moore out of the bullpen. This week the Hogs move Ryne Stanek back to the Friday spot without announcing a Saturday starter.
Possible starters on Saturday for the Razorbacks include Moore, Barrett Astin, or Randall Fant.
The Gators move Jonathon Crawford from Friday to Sunday to square off against D.J. Baxendale.
Tennessee pitcher Nick Williams moves from the third spot in the rotation to the first spot against Auburn. Auburn slides Jon Luke Jacobs and Daniel Koger from the two and three spot to first and second respectively. Derek Varnadore will apparently miss a start this weekend for the Tigers.
LSU keeps their rotation in tack against Georgia. The Bulldogs add Luke Crumley to the third spot in their rotation.
South Carolina’s junior pitcher Colby Holmes will miss a spot in this weekend’s rotation after earning his sixth win of the season against Auburn last weekend. The Gamecocks have not announced a starter for their Sunday game against Alabama.
The Commodores and Wildcats keep their weekend starters the same heading into the SEC East matchup.
Ole Miss and MSU remain unsure about the third man in their rotation. Last week both teams did not name a starter before weekend action began.
