View Full Version : International League Pitcher of the Week

04-23-2004, 12:01 AM
Charlotte right-handed pitcher Felix Diaz was named Pitcher of the Week in the International League with 13 shutout innings and two wins over two starts. In the two starts he added ten strikeouts and had a WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched) of 0.38. Since winning the award Diaz has improved his record to 3-0.

The 23 year-old was acquired from the San Francisco Giants in 2002 in a trade for Kenny Lofton. Last season he went 5-7 with a 3.97 ERA in 27 games, 18 starts, for the Knights. If Diaz continues to pitch well he could figure as a top choice for a callup to the White Sox in the case of an injury.
