College: Pitcher of the Year Watch List


Press Release by College Baseball Hall of Fame

LUBBOCK, Texas — Miniscule earned-run averages and double-digit wins highlight the statistics of players on the newest watch list for the 2016 National Pitcher of the Year Award, presented by the National College Baseball Hall of Fame.

The award, sponsored by Diamond, will be presented on July 2 in Lubbock as part of the annual Night of Champions event.

St. John’s right-hander Thomas Hackimer continues to lead the watch list candidates with a 0.21 ERA in 43 1/3 innings. He also has eight saves and 59 strikeouts.

Michael Rucker, a junior right-hander at BYU, and Ryan Foster, a senior right-hander at UNC Wilmington, lead the watch list in wins with 10 each. Rucker is 10-0 with a 2.58 ERA and 76 strikeouts in 80 1/3 innings. Foster is 10-1 with a 2.49 ERA with 49 strikeouts in 83 innings pitched.

“This process is already becoming difficult,” said Brian Melakian, Pitcher of the Year Award co-chair. “With so many pitchers having great seasons, it was difficult to get the list down this far. We are already splitting hairs. It’s obvious that the semi-finalists and finalists will be both deserving and the best of the best.”

Southeast Missouri State’s Joey Lucchesi, a senior left-hander, leads the country in strikeouts with 115. In 80 2/3 innings, Lucchesi is 8-4 with a 2.01 ERA.

Navy’s Luke Gillingham leads the watch list and the country in complete games with eight. In 11 starts this season, the senior left-hander is 8-2 with a 1.32 ERA and 80 strikeouts through 75 innings.

“It’s amazing to see how consistent these young men have been through this point in the season,” said Raymond Richardson, Pitcher of the Year Award co-chair. “Some of the numbers they have put up are already very impressive, and there’s still time left in the season. It will be fun to watch how the rest of the season plays out.”

College: First Pitcher of the Year Watch List Released


Press Release College Baseball Hall of Fame

LUBBOCK, Texas — As conference play begins to wind down for many schools, the National College Baseball Hall of Fame released today the initial watch list for the Pitcher of the Year Award.

The award, sponsored by Diamond, will be presented on June 29 in Lubbock as part of the annual Night of Champions.

There are eight schools with multiple representatives on the watch list, led by TCU with three — right-handers Preston Morrison and Riley Ferrell and left-hander Alex Young. Morrison is 8-1 on the season with a 1.81 earned run average. Ferrell has a 0.95 ERA and 10 saves. Young has the most strikeouts among the three Horned Frogs, with 56 in 54 innings.

“To have three pitchers from one school make the watch list is a sign of their dominance on the mound,” said Raymond Richardson, Pitcher of the Year committee co-chair. “Those three guys have been impressive all year, both in early action and in conference play.”

Vanderbilt’s Carson Fulmer, 7-1, leads the watch list in strikeouts with 90 in 64 innings, while Texas Tech’s Corey Taylor brings the lowest ERA at 0.36 in 50 innings pitched.

“Each of the pitchers on this list has some strong numbers this season,” said Chris Snead, Pitcher of the Year Award co-chair. “There’s still a lot of baseball to be played so it will be interesting to see how things sort out toward the end of the season.”
