The Florida Gators have added a third commitment from the transfer portal in Miami infielder, Blake Cyr. The junior will transfer to Florida with two years to play after spending two seasons with the Miami Hurricanes.

Cyr was only able to play in 25 games for the Canes last season due to injury. Despite breaking his thump in April, he still slashed .284/.397/.537 with seven home runs, the infielder played just 25 games. As a freshman at Miami, Cyr, played in 59 games. He slashed a stellar .306/.420/.628 season. Cye hit 17 home runs and drove in 63 RBI’s as one of the best hitters in the ACC. Cyr posted 18 multi-hit performances and 19 multi-RBI efforts, while registering a .427 on-base percentage and .620 slugging percentage. He was named to the ACC All-Freshman team.

The Gators have made several moves to bolster their 2025 infield. Florida added JU infielder Justin Nadeau as well as Texas Tech infielder Landon Stripling earlier this week.

The Gators will lose both of their corner infield starters. Jac Caglianone is set to be a top-10 pick in the 2024 MLB Draft. Third basemen Dale Thomas and Tyler Shelnut and reserve infielder Armando Albert are all playing their final seasons of eligibility in 2024. The Gators also had a freshman corner infielder, John Martinez, enter the transfer portal on Tuesday. Shortstop Colby Shelton is also a draft-eligible sophomore and could elect to sign, depending on where he is drafted this July.

If Shelton were to leave, that would be three of four starters that the Gators needed to replace and Stripling can play both corner positions or second base as well as a corner outfield spot in a pinch, but will primarily play infield for the Gators.
