In a bit of good news for the UCLA Baseball team, pitcher David Berg has announced that he is returning to Westwood for one more year. The soon-to-be senior was selected in the MLB Draft by the Texas Rangers, but failed to come to terms with the baseball club. The result gives UCLA another year with the pitcher who has already racked up several accolades in his three years with the Bruins.

UCLA has been in the midst of a weird weekend that could be very beneficial to them for the 2015 season. Along with the return of Berg, the Bruins might be receiving a few signees that failed to ink deals with the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball. Brady Aiken and Jacob Nix were also selected in the most recent MLB Draft by Houston, but were not able to come to an agreement with the team. One of their options now, is to play for UCLA, the school they had originally signed with before the draft.
If Aiken and Nix do join the Bruins, along with the return of Berg, that will give UCLA a very impressive rotation for pitching duty next year and hopes of improving on a less-than-satisfying title defense that left UCLA out of the College World Series with a 25-30-1 record, one season after winning the National Championship.
