On the same day that Mets pitching prospect Darin Gorski was named FSL Pitcher of the Year, he took the mound and hurled five more shutout innings for St. Lucie in a 2-1 win over the Fort Myers Miracle.
Gorski was absolutely dominating and allowed just two hits and struck out five while walking none.
His ERA now stands at 2.08 for the season in 21 starts.
Original Post: Gorski Named Florida State League Pitcher of the Year
St. Lucie LHP Darin Gorski, who is 11-3 with a 2.15 ERA with 136 strikeouts, was named the Florida State League Pitcher of the Year.
Coming into this season, Gorski was not considered much of a prospect, but he has clearly changed all of that and put himself into any discussion about the Mets top pitching prospects after a spectacular all-around season for Single-A St. Lucie.
Gorski held hitters to a .215 batting average this season, and his 136 strikeouts to 29 walks gives him a better than 4.5:1 K/BB rate which is very considerable.
The young southpaw leads the league in ERA (2.15) and WHIP (1.02) and ranks third with 11 wins and 136 strikeouts in 26 outings (20 starts) for St. Lucie.
Gorski, who was a seventh-round pick in the 2009 Draft, was undefeated this season until July 24, when he allowed just three runs in seven innings, but took the loss.
Look for Gorski to begin next season with a promotion to Double-A Binghamton.
