College Baseball Daily for the third straight season will release a Player and Pitcher of the Week Award. For the week ending on Feb. 27th, we honor Garrett Buechele from Oklahoma and Danny Hultzen from Virginia.
Buechele had an excellent week in five games grabbing 11 hits, including two home runs and 12 RBIs while hitting .500 for the week. Buechele also scored seven runs, slugged at a .773 clip and had one walk and was hit by two pitches to post a .560 on-base percentage.
Danny Hultzen from Virginia had an outstanding start against East Carolina on Friday night. In seven innings he racked up a career-high 15 strikeouts while not walking a batter. He allowed just a run in the seventh inning and three hits. After giving up a single to the first batter in the game, Hultzen retired the next 19 batters in order with just one ball leaving the infield in those innings. He also went to a three-ball count just two times and struck out the side on three occasions.
