Noesi Named EL Pitcher Of The Week

(PR) (Trenton, NJ) – The Trenton Thunder announced today that RHP Hector Noesi has been named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for the week ending June 6th.

The 6’2”, 175 lb. hurler made a pair of starts for the Thunder last week and posted a record of 2-0 with 14 strikeouts and a 1.38 ERA. Noesi, who is a native of Esperanza, Dominican Republic, made his first start of the week at home on Tuesday night against Portland and did not allow an earned run in six innings of work in Trenton’s 6-2 victory. He struck out four batters and walked two while allowing just three hits to earn his first career Double-A win. The 23-year old was equally impressive during his second appearance of the week on Sunday afternoon against Richmond, giving up two runs on six hits over seven innings to earn the win at Waterfront Park. He struck out 10 batters and walked one while lowering his ERA to 3.32 with Trenton this season. Noesi’s two wins last week tied for first among all Eastern League pitchers and his 14 strikeouts ranked second. Hector, who started eight games with Class-A Tampa this season and had a record of 5-2 with 53 strikeouts and a 2.72 ERA, was signed by the New York Yankees as a non-drafted free agent on December 3, 2004.

This is the second consecutive week that a Thunder player has earned a weekly honor, following IF Brandon Laird being named EL Player of the Week for the week ending May 30th. Laird was also named the EL Player of the Month for May.

Joining Noesi in the weekly EL honors is Shawn Bowman, third baseman for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. The 25-year old hit .393 (11-for-28) with two doubles, four home runs, 10 RBI, seven runs scored, three walks and a .893 slugging percentage in seven games.

    Are there any reports on Noesi’s velocity? Average FB? Peak?

    He seems to just be carving up the minors yet is never spoken a word of.

    Talk about a guy who seemingly came out of nowhere! Good to see that his Tampa numbers were not a fluke, but that he is instead continuingg where he left off.

    71-10 K/BB rate combined for 2010. Gotta love it.
