Another dent in Nebraska baseball’s future depth chart came Tuesday. John Gaskins of Lincoln’s 93.7 The Ticket reported that catcher Jakson Reetz will be headed to the nation’s capitol to play for the Washington Nationals.
Reetz going pro is ZERO surprise. He’s traveled the world, played w future major leaguers. Used to the baseball life. Go for it! #Huskers

While the Huskers lose out on a major prospect, give props to head coach Darin Erstad for pursuing major league talent.
Nebraska baseball has lost about as much it can afford to and still be a force to be reckoned with next season. It wouldn’t be surprising to hear Pat Kelly’s status any time now with Chance Sinclair being the other piece of the experienced puzzle.
If the Huskers lose those two to the pros, a substantial part of the starting rotation is missing considering Christian DeLeon, Zach Hirsch and Michael Pritchard are already out the door along with the other seniors.
Nebraska’s already going to be a green squad next season. It’ll need all the seasoned vets it can get.
