Cal outfielder Brandon McIlwain has reportedly broken his foot and is likely to miss the remainder of the 2019 baseball season. The injury occurred March 24 in Cal’s series against Oregon State.

McIlwain is a two-sport athlete who also plays quarterback for the Cal football team. He sat out the 2017 football season and 2018 baseball season after transferring from South Carolina in May 2017.

In his first football season, he threw 129 passes for 763 yards, two touchdowns and eight interceptions. On the ground, he rushed 79 times for 403 yards and four touchdowns.

Unfortunately for the redshirt sophomore, it is unlikely he’ll enjoy a full season in his first year of eligibility on the diamond. Before his injury, the outfielder had slashed .258/.309/.435 and had hit two home runs and eight RBIs through 62 at-bats.

McIlwain will undergo surgery on his foot and is likely to suit up at the start of this fall’s football season.
