The busy offseason for Arkansas Baseball continues, with the departure of two more players to the transfer portal.
Wednesday, outfielder Zack Gregory and relief pitcher Elijah Trest announced their intentions to enter the transfer portal, which moves the number to ten Razorbacks who have entered the portal since the offseason began.
Gregory, a redshirt junior from Keller, Texas, announced his intent to enter the portal via his Instagram account on Wednesday. Gregory appeared in 56 games for Arkansas in 2022, where he hit .212 with five home runs and 18 RBI. Despite not having a high average, Gregory was known for finding ways to get on base. He collected 53 total bases in 2022 and was hit by a pitch 16 times while drawing 35 walks.
Trest will look to use his final season of eligibility elsewhere. A 2021 MLB Draft selection by the Colorado Rockies, Trest tossed 14.1 innings over 13 games in relief. In those 13 games, he struck out 17 batters while issuing 13 walks.
However, as two players leave, Arkansas gained the addition of a junior college prospect to fill a very important role.
Parker Roland, a switch-hitting catcher from Eastern Oklahoma State College, announced via Twitter than he will be transferring to Arkansas. The addition of Roland is huge for Arkansas, as it fills a need left by departing senior Michael Turner, as well as Dylan Leach and Max Soliz Jr., who left the program by the transfer portal.
