Stratton Picks Up Another Honor: PG Pitcher Of The Year
Stratton, who paced Mississippi State with an 11-2 record and crafted a 2.38 earned run average, was tabbed the collegiate pitcher of the year this week by Perfect Game, one of the nation's leading baseball scouting services.
In an online review of the 2012 campaign, Perfect Game college editor Kendall Rogers selected the Arizona Wildcats as the team of the year, Florida State outfielder James Ramsey as the player of the year, and State's Chris Stratton as the pitcher of the year. Stratton, a consensus All-American and the 2012 SEC Pitcher of the Year, registered 127 strikeouts while walking 25 in 109-2/3 innings, holding opposing hitters to a .211 batting average. The San Francisco Giants made the right-hander from Tupelo, Miss., a first round selection (20th pick overall) in the 2012 MLB draft.
