UConn starting catcher Joe Pavone will miss the entire 2011 season with a torn ACL he suffered last Friday sliding into a base. Last season, Pavone appeared in 39 games (36 starts) while hitting .273 with five homers and 20 RBI. Doug Elliot is expected to take over the starting catcher spot this season as he appeared in 31 games (28 starts) hitting .298 with two homers and 16 RBI.
