LUBBOCK, Texas — Texas Tech has confirmed to Red Raider Nation that outfielder Dylan Neuse will likely be out for the year with a back injury. Tech also confirmed that Kurt Wilson is out at least six weeks with a broken thumb.

Neuse was named Big 12 (preseason) Player of the Year, as announced by Texas Tech in January. He batted .281 for 2021 and .305 for this time with Texas Tech.

His last game was April 11 vs TCU but not as a starter. He was injured more than a week ago when he was hit by a pitch in the back.

Wilson, meanwhile, left the final game against TCU after injuring his thumb while sliding into third base. He was hitting .261 with two home runs and 11 RBIs.

The news was originally reported by Kendall Rogers of D1 Baseball.
