VU pitcher Zeid intends to transfer

Vanderbilt sophomore pitcher Josh Zeid is in the process of transferring to another school, although the destination has yet to be determined, Commodores coach Tim Corbin said.

Zeid, a 6-foot-4 right-hander, appeared in only five games and pitched 4 1/3 innings in 2007. He was regarded as one of the jewels of Vanderbilt's 2004 recruiting class that was ranked No. 1 in the nation. He was the Gatorade Connecticut Player of the Year in 2004 at Hamden Hall High in New Haven, Conn., and was ranked as the 27th-best pro prospect in the nation by Baseball America.

Corbin said Zeid might still return to Vanderbilt next year if a suitable school is not found. In addition, Corbin said reserve sophomore first baseman Kurt Lipton is considering a transfer to another school. Zeid and Lipton were not on VU's 25-man postseason roster.
