LSU catcher Alex Milazzo says he’ll be back next season. 

Milazzo, a Zachary High School graduate, told Tiger Rag Radio on Tuesday he will return for a fifth season at LSU, giving the Tigers a strong trio behind the plate.

Hayden Travinski — who was not in the lineup at the beginning of the season but ultimately became the Tigers’ cleanup hitter — said earlier Tuesday he intended to return to campus. Travinski was not taken in the MLB draft earlier this month.

LSU also has Brady Neal, who started 26 games last season.

Milazzo has already played four years at LSU. He started 25 games last season and played in 53, finishing with a career-best .289 batting average, .369 on-base percentage and .299 slugging percentage.

Milazzo fractured his fibula when he ran home during the College World Series finals, meaning he will take the summer to recover. He dealt with a nagging knee injury during the 2022 season, appearing in just 12 games. He was draft-eligible last summer but chose to return.
