Huntington Beach (Calif.) star Logan Pouelsen out for season with Tommy John surgery

By

The Huntington Beach (Calif.) baseball team will be without right-handed pitcher/third baseman Logan Pouelsen for the rest of the season after he underwent Tommy John surgery Friday.

A UCLA signee, Poulsen did not allow an earned run last season.

Pouelsen hurt the elbow Feb. 29 on a pitch he threw against Orange Lutheran. He had an MRI three days later.

Huntington Beach was ranked No. 4 in the Preseason Super 25 in part because of its deep pitching staff that includes junior right-hander Hagen Danner, a UCLA commit; left-hander Nick Pratto, who transferred from Mater Dei (Santa Ana); and junior Cory Moore, a transfer from Yucaipa.

But the team is off to a 3-4 start, including being no-hit Friday by Marina (Huntington Beach), and fell out of the most recent Super 25 rankings.

Huntington beat will look to get on a roll as part of the prestigious National High School Baseball Invitational, which begins this week at the USA Baseball complex in Cary, N.C.
