Senior Pitcher Tyler Joyner Dismissed From ECU Baseball Program

Posted January 28, 2013

— East Carolina senior left-hander Tyler Joyner has been dismissed from the Pirate baseball program according to an announcement from head baseball coach Billy Godwin Monday afternoon.

“We were made aware of an off-the-field incident involving Tyler last week,” Godwin said. “I have made a determination that Tyler was in violation of our team philosophy and he has been dismissed from the team. As a program, we hold our student-athletes to a high standard and being held accountable for their actions.”

Joyner, who was selected in the 35th round (pick 1,063) by the Kansas City Royals, appeared in 17 games (12 starts) posting a 6-2 record with a 3.01 ERA in 92.2 innings a year ago. The Red Oak, N.C. native struck out 68 batters while walking just 12, ranking 18th nationally in strikeout-to-walk ratio (5.67).
