The Virginia series is now listed on the 2021 UConn baseball schedule on the athletics website. It wouldn't surprise me if the schedule basically gets gradually tweeted out like this rather than have an actual story of a full season schedule release given the way things are going athletically with the pandemic. We'll see how it all goes.
Anyone want to guess the three UConn starters?
You can't move Wurster out of the pen if you're not making him a weekend starter. It would be like Roscoe Smith deciding he was a 3, rather than a 3/4, so he could give up 20 minutes a game of playing time. Wait -- that actually happened, didn't it?My guess would be Casparius, Simeone, and Wurster. It seems that if the coaching staff is seriously interested in turning Wurster into a starter, he'll get a shot at weekend duty right away. Given the depth of the pitching staff, it also wouldn't surprise me if I'm wrong.

I've got Casparius on Friday night, and either Wurster or Haus either Saturday or Sunday (1 of them will be in the back of the bullpen). I have no clue between Dunlop, Simeone or Wang who else gets the call, but that means 2 of them won't and given that all 3 of them were weekend starters in either 20 or 19, certainly bodes well for the season.
But given what we're hearing about the schedule, it may be that this year you need four weekend starters and have far fewer midweek games.
