DURHAM, N.C. – Sophomore James Marvel will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season due to a right elbow injury. Marvel will undergo Tommy John surgery May 7.
“We are certainly very disappointed to lose James Marvel for the year,” said head coach Chris Pollard. “James had performed extremely well for us through the fall and early spring. I know that James will receive great care from Shawn Love and our sports medicine staff and am very encouraged by his prospects for a full recovery.”
Marvel started four games this season for the Blue Devils, posting a 2-2 record with a 1.78 ERA. Over 25.1 innings of work, he allowed five earned runs on 21 hits, striking out 16 while walking seven batters.
