Paul Mainieri announced that right-handed pitcher Landon Marceaux will start for the No. 9 seeded LSU Tigers when they take on No. 8 Georgia in a single-elimination matchup in the SEC Tournament on Tuesday afternoon.

Marceaux didn't have his usual outing vs. Texas A&M last weekend and was pulled after just 60 pitches due to fatigue but said he's 100-percent ready to go vs. the Bulldogs. Per Sports Illustrated:

Marceaux will earn the start against the Bulldogs coach Paul Mainieri confirmed while meeting with the media in a must win situation for the purple and gold to remain in Hoover.

"I didn't feel well but that one day is behind me and I'm ready to go tomorrow," Marceaux said.

"We've been monitoring how he's been feeling the last few days and he's been feeling pretty good," coach Paul Mainieri said. "He tells me he's 100%, he's been throwing the last three days. He wants the ball badly so I'm not gonna prevent that from happening."
The first pitch between LSU and Georgia is set for 4:30 p.m. CT on the SEC Network. Full Schedule.

Why is it the trainer's fault for Gino's hammy not being ready? If the hamstring is hurt, the hamstring is hurt and it's really a timeline thing rust shouldn't be rushed but is bc he wants to play. That's why it keeps getting reaggravated. Trainer can't heal his hammy with magic...
