EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon baseball begins practice on Friday. 

The Ducks are set to have a healthy Kenyon Yovan to start the season. Yovan missed most of the 2019 season after suffering an injury two innings into the season opener against Texas Tech. 

"I am throwing the same amount of bullpens as everyone else, throwing in the scrimmage this Saturday, same with everyone," Yovan said. "I am on the same program. I'm slowly ramping it up, about 85 to 90 percent right now and things are looking up."

Yovan went 6-4 with a 2.98 ERA in 2018 and was selected in the 27th round of the MLB Draft by the Angels before deciding to return for his senior season.

"We have an optimistic Kenyon Yovan," Oregon head coach Mark Wasikowski said. "He is healthy right now and he is on a throwing program that's building him up the proper way."

Oregon opens the season against Minnesota on February 14 in Tempe, Ariz.
