USC junior outfielder Omar Cotto Lozada is expected to be out six weeks after having surgery on his right wrist last Friday. Cotto Lozada fractured the hamate bone in his wrist on a follow through.

The speedy Cotto Lozada was competing for an outfield spot, but was/is likely to be a reserve once again this season.

As pointed out on College Baseball Daily, the 5-foot-10 Puerto Rican has not found offensive success, but has made contributions:

Cotto Lozada struggled mightily his freshman and sophomore years, collecting only six hits in 80 career at bats (.086 average). He has started 23 games, but the diminutive switch hitter has safely reached base only 14 times.

While he wasn’t expected to win a starting spot, Cotto Lozada has previously been used as a late inning defensive substitution and pinch runner thanks to his lighting-quick speed.

If he returns on time, Cotto Lozada will miss little Pac-12 conference play, but with a team that is expected to struggle, the Trojans could use everyone healthy.
