Nebraska added an important arm out of the transfer portal by adding Texas A&M right-hander Mason Ornelas. The right-handed pitcher announced the transfer on social media on Tuesday afternoon.

The 6-foot, 210-pound Ornelas will have three seasons of eligibility with the Huskers in the 2022 season after playing his first two years of baseball (he will get a Covid year back) at Texas A&M under former head coach Rob Childress. Ornelas entered the transfer portal on June 30 after A&M hired Jim Schlossnagle as head coach.

Ornelas was a big piece of the Aggies’ bullpen last season, making 18 appearances with one start. Ornelas finished 3-2 record with a 5.11 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 37.0 innings of work. Opponents hit .273 off Ornelas last year.

Texas picked up a transfer catcher from Texas A&M.  Not sure why he thinks he'll see more PT here in Austin, since our current catcher is a freshman who's the best we've had since 2002-2005 when Texas made it to the Final 4 every year, championship series 3 of the 4, and won the national championship twice.

But having backups is always nice I guess.

catchers need a day off or a few innings off more often than other position players

I guess, but he's leaving a backup gig at A&M, for the same at Texas.

Well, actually, I guess that explains everything.  Nevermind. :)
