Among the six Tennessee baseball players no longer on the current roster are four players who were on last season's roster.
Wes Rucker of govols247 reports that Brandon Zajac, a talented but erratic sophomore left-handed pitcher from the Chattanooga area, agreed with coaches that he'd be better served this season getting more innings and more opportunities at a junior college.
Several others were ahead of Zajac on the tentative depth chart.
Side-arming reliever Samuel Davis, who was initially considered a potential closer when he arrived at UT from a junior college, is also no longer on the roster.
Outfielder Nick Powell and infielder Kevin O'Leary decided to concentrate on academics. Powell was mainly a defensive replacement and pinch runner. O'Leary redshirted last season after transferring from Furman.
The two other players trimmed from the roster are freshman right-handed pitcher Daniel Harris and Robert Lawhon, a junior college pitcher/outfielder from USC Sumter.
UT started with a roster of 42. The maximum a team can carry for the spring is 35.
