LSU BB freshman suspended from team after arrest

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU baseball coach Paul Mainieri says a freshman pitcher from Bossier City has been suspended indefinitely after being arrested and booked with drunken driving.
The Advocate reports that 19-year-old Carson Baranik was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison early Saturday on one count each of first-offense DWI, disobeying a red light and reckless operation of a vehicle.

The right-hander was expected to earn time as a reliever this season. Baranik was drafted in the 41st round of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft by the Cincinnati Reds but decided to enroll at LSU.

Mainieri tells the newspaper he took action as soon as he learned of the incident Saturday.
