Former Husker Kubat patiently trains while baseball continues suspension

OMAHA (KMTV) – Kyle Kubat has been patient his entire career.

He didn’t become Nebraska’s ace until his senior season in Lincoln. He didn’t get drafted by any MLB team after he graduated. He’s been in the minor leagues for three years and six seasons.

So he can wait a little longer to begin his fourth season of professional baseball, currently with the Chicago White Sox organization.

“I’ve been training since the season ends in September,” Kubat, who’s now with Triple-A Charlotte, said. “My mind is already on next season in late September, early October. Getting ready in the weight room. Getting back in nutrition. All this stuff, planning all this five months ahead. I leave in February for spring training and I’m ready to roll. So it’s frustrating putting in all that work, the mental work, the physical work, and to have it all shut down. Not really knowing when it’s going to start up again, it’s just a guessing game. You’ve gotta stay mentally and physically ready for whenever it is. ”

Kubat is in Omaha currently preparing for his next season.
