Darin Gorski has been selected as the 2011 Top Starting Pitcher in Class A Advanced.
The 2009 seventh-rounder of the Mets not only established a personal best by winning 11 games for St. Lucie, he also tossed three complete games and was selected to the Florida State League All-Star team.
Gorski was 11-3 as a starter, with a 1.98 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. In 138 innings pitched, the young left-hander struck out 140 batters while walking just 29.
Gorski is just one of many pitchers who made huge strides in 2011 along with Matt Harvey and Jeurys Familia.
