FROM COLLEGE BASEBALL FOUNDATION RELEASE
“It’s been really exciting to see the numbers these pitchers have put up all year,” said Justin Knowles, Pitcher of the Year committee co-chair.
The Pitcher of the Year Award will be presented in Lubbock, Texas, on July 2 as part of the College Baseball Awards Show.
The University of Texas features three pitchers among the 25 on the revised watch list. Cole Green is 9-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 69.1 innings pitched. Chance Ruffin has 10 saves, a 1.06 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 25 appearances. Brandon Workman is 8-1 in 10 starts. He also has 65 strikeouts to go with his 1.61 ERA and only 12 walks.
UCLA and Coastal Carolina each have two pitchers on the watch list.
“For some of these schools to have multiple pitchers on the list is really impressive,” Knowles said. “As the regular season wraps up, it will be interesting to see how these pitchers continue to add to their statistics.”
There are 11 different conferences represented on the newest watch list, with the Big 12 and the Pac-10 each having four representatives.
Chris Patterson of Appalachian State has the lowest ERA (0.58) on the list. Asher Wojciechowski of The Citadel has 98 strikeouts, leading the watch list in that category.
The College Baseball Awards Show will take place on July 2 in Lubbock, Texas, as part of a nearly weeklong schedule of festivities sponsored by the College Baseball Foundation. The events also include the induction ceremony for the National College Baseball Hall of Fame.
