Miami infielder Blake Cyr commits to transfer to Florida

Miami Hurricanes infielder Blake Cyr has announced his commitment to transfer to the Florida Gators.

Blake Cyr spent two seasons with Miami. During that time, the Hurricanes primarily used him as a second baseman. He played in 60 games as a freshman but only 25 as a sophomore. That’s because he, unfortunately, suffered a season-ending thumb injury while sliding into a base that forced him to have surgery.

In those 85 career games at Miami, Blake Cyr had a .298 batting average, a .418 OBP, and a .593 slugging percentage. He also has 24 home runs and 84 RBIs. Those big offensive numbers go along with a good glove in the infield. He has a career fielding percentage of .949, along with 76 assists and 73 putouts.

Blake Cyr was looking forward to a highly-anticipated sophomore season before the injury cut it short. He was a consensus Freshman All-American. Cyr was also named to the All-ACC Freshman Team and the All-ACC Academic Team.

Despite that, the 2024 season was a disappointing one for Miami. The Hurricanes went just 27-30 overall and 11-19 in ACC play. Their season ended with a loss in the ACC Conference Tournament to Duke. On top of that, the Hurricanes also lost two out of three games to the Florida Gators in a non-conference series at the beginning of March.
