Caldwell Out For 6-8 Weeks


By Sports Department - Tim Hill

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Starting outfielder Elliott Caldwell will miss the next 6-8 weeks with a back injury Carolina coach Chad Holbrook revealed Tuesday.

Holbrook told the SC Sportstalk Radio Network he expects the junior outfielder from the upstate to most likely miss the rest of the season after an MRI revealed a serious back injury.

Caldwell has started 35 of USC's 45 games this season. He's hitting .254 with 5 doubles and 14 RBI.

The College World Series starts in a little more than six weeks.
