Outfielder Cade Bormet, a University of Missouri freshman from Reagan, likely is out for the season after suffering a facial fracture last week in a home game against Georgia.
Bormet was hospitalized last Thursday after crashing into a wall while chasing a ball tailing foul down the right field line.
A Missouri spokesman said Bormet’s condition is improving.
“Cade is doing much better,” the spokesman said in an email. “He did break the left orbital bone in his face, suffered a concussion and a large laceration on his left knee.
“He’s likely out for the remainder of the year as he recovers.”
As a high school player, Bormet helped lead Reagan to the state runner-up finishes in both 2014 and 2017.
He hit .360 with five home runs as a senior.
At Missouri, Bormet has played in 34 games with 15 starts. He is batting .261 with seven doubles, six RBI and 13 runs scored.
