Kenzie Fowler redshirting this year

Kenzie Fowler, the Canyon Del Oro High School star who pitched the Arizona Wildcats to the 2010 Women’s College World Series finale before being beset by a series of injuries, will redshirt this season, the UA announced.

Fowler had back surgery in September and had hoped to return in time to pitch for the Wildcats this season.

Fowler, who went 15-9 with a 2.85 ERA last year, will play for the UA next season as a fifth-year senior.
