The Tigers have seen nine players announce their departures thus far, key pitchers heading elsewhere.

The LSU baseball staff is in the midst of a massive offseason with the program set to retool its roster once again in the coming months.

With nine members of the 2024 roster already revealing their departures, head coach Jay Johnson will look to utilize the Transfer Portal once again in order to add key pieces to the 2025 roster

We’ve seen Johnson become a wizard in the free agent market after adding the likes of Paul Skenes, Luke Holman and Gage Jump, among others, to dominate on the mound, but what’s in store this offseason?

Phase one is to free up spots to the current roster and LSU has already seen several guys announce their intentions to depart Baton Roug

Kling was one of the highest-rated prospects in LSU baseball history after signing with the Tigers as the No. 6 prospect in America according to Perfect Game.

The 2022 signee dominated at the high school ranks but his approach at the plate didn’t translate to SEC play.

Kling ended his first season in Baton Rouge hitting .289 as a freshman and .222 during the 2024 campaign.

The coveted outfielder will have two seasons of eligibility remaining at his next destination. He saw significant playing time as a true freshman in 2023 as a key defensive piece before seeing his time in the field decline in 2024.

He started off the season in the leadoff slot before the outfield rotation of Josh Pearson, Jake Brown (freshman) and Ashton Larson (freshman) took shape.
