South Carolina first baseman Christian Walker's status is down for the national championship title series with a left wrist injury.
Walker "tweaked his wrist" in the last at-bat of Friday night's win over Virginia, coach Ray Tanner said Sunday afternoon.
"We were hoping for the best but it wasnt encouraging today," Tanner said after batting practice.
Tanner said trainers don't know the extent of the injury and that Walker will be fully evaluated once the team returns to Columbia.
"Whether or not he'll be able to play is in question," Tanner said. "He made a little bit of progress from the other night, but not enough."
