Stout Nabs Spot on NCBWA Stopper of the Year Midseason Watch List

Full NCBWA Release

 

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – ORU Baseball's Kyler Stout was one of 40 of the sports top relief pitchers named to the Midseason Watch List for the 13th annual National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Stopper of the Year Award, members of the association announced.

 

Stout, a native of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, took over the closer role for the Golden Eagles after an injury to Brady Womacks, a NCBWA Preseason Watch List selection. The redshirt junior has been nearly lights out for ORU during the 2017 campaign allowing just two earned runs for a 0.76 earned run average and a Summit League-leading seven saves.

 

Seventeen of the 40 players named by the NCBWA were on the preseason watch list released in February, including Virginia Commonwealth's Sam Donko, who is the only returner among last year's five finalists for an award that is given annually to the top relief pitcher In NCAA Division I baseball.

 

Among the 23 newcomers to the watch list are the nation's top two saves leaders. Minnesota's Brian Glowicki and Mississippi State's Spencer Price both have 14 saves. That duo leads a group of 15 pitchers on the watch list who has already amassed double-digit saves in 2017. Glowicki's 0.39 ERA is tops among the 40 players.

 

Oregon State's Jake Mulholland is one of four freshmen that made the list. The left-hander is 5-0 with five saves and owns a 1.02 ERA for the top-ranked Beavers.

 

There are 17 conferences represented on the list with the Atlantic Coast, Pacific-12 and Southeastern Conference each leading the way with five relief pitchers on the list.
