McP Earns Pitcher Of The Year Honor

I recently ran down Kyle McPherson‘s impressive stats in the post, Kyle McPherson Ending His Season On A High Note.  It looks like many in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization realize what an impressive season McP has put together.  The State College Spikes affiliate passed on an honor to McP yesterday, awarding him with the title of Pitcher of the Year.  Coaches, front office personnel, and members of the media chose McPherson as the recipient of the prestigious award.

While Kyle’s stats are extremely impressive with the Spikes, him receiving this award is much more noteworthy when one realizes that he spent roughly half the year with a different affiliate in the Pirates organization.  While with the other affiliate, the West Virginia Power, McP was 5-2 with 32 strikeouts and only 6 walks.  But those stats were not taken into account when the voters selected Kyle as Pitcher of the Year.

Congrats, Kyle!  Finish the year strong.  Everyone is looking forward to seeing what type of campaign you will put together in 2010.
