The Mason City pitcher owned a 4-2 record with a 1.65 ERA before missing most of the second half of the season with an injury.
Rood said the pitcher has been suffering from tendinitis in his right elbow. It didn’t keep him from hitting in Wednesday’s game when he went 1-for-4 as Mason City’s designated hitter.
The word that Platts may not be pitching in the state tournament was the buzz throughout Principal Park.
The Mohawks are being very careful with Platts, a 27th round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, who signed a letter of intent to play for Missouri.
