CLEMSON - Clemson will start Dominic Leone in the Saturday opener of its home series against the College of Charleston with ace Kevin Brady sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Brady suffered the injury at Georgia Tech last weekend and is expected to be out 2-4 weeks. Brady missed most of last season with a forearm injury when Leone also replaced him as the team’s No. 1 starter.

Leone (6-3) has not been as sharp this season as he is has a 5.53 ERA and has been plagued by stretches of wildness.

Brady has a 2.64 ERA. Kevin Pohle will start Sunday’s game. Clemson has not announced a starter for Monday.
