Dozier not expected to play in Super Regional

HATTIESBURG — Southern Miss baseball coach Corky Palmer says he does not plan to have senior shortstop Brian Dozier, a Fulton native, available for this weekend’s NCAA Super Regional at Gainesville, Fla.

Dozier was hopeful early last week that he would be able to return should the Eagles win their way past the Atlanta regional. But despite being released by team physician Dr. Lance Line Wednesday morning, Palmer was skeptical of any probability of Dozier playing.

Dozier suffered a broken collarbone on April 14.
