Texas shortstop Mitchell Daly enters the transfer portal

Texas shortstop Mitchell Daly enters the transfer portal

Texas shortstop Mitchell Daly is in the transfer portal as of Friday morning. The key piece of the Longhorns baseball program over the last three seasons is looking for a change of scenery.

Daly batted .263 over his career at Texas in 171 starts for the team. After a strong 2021 saw him hit for a strong .316 average, the two years that followed saw some struggles at the plate.

Certainly, Daly is a loss for the team at baseball’s most premium position outside of pitcher. The leadership one would assume he brings to the team will be difficult to replace. So, too, will be the lost experience the Longhorns will have at the position.

If there’s one thing the past season illustrated for Texas, it’s that head coach David Pierce is capable of replacing lost talent and production. Though we were critical of Pierce in the offseason and after a slow start, he put together as good a season as one could have expected.

Texas will look to retool at the position following a regular season Big 12 title and strong postseason performance.
