After Brooklyn Cyclones pitcher Kyle Wilson doled out five innings of just allowing two batters to reach base (one walk, one hit batter) while striking out 10 versus the Connecticut Tigers on August 10, the New York-Penn League bestowed the righty with the NYPL Pitcher of the Week honor for the period of August 6th – 12th.
Over his last two starts, the six-one, 185-pound Canton, Ohio, native has fired 12.0 shutout innings, permitting just three hits and two walks while striking out 18 batters. For the year, Wilson is 2-3 with a 3.38 ERA in eight starts across 40.0 innings on the bump.
Subsequent to the New York Mets choosing Wilson in the 35th round of the 2017 MLB amateur draft, he went on to post a 1-1 record in 18 frames in seven games, two of which were starts, while limiting hitters to a .197 batting average with the Gulf Coast (R) Mets.
