JORDAN DESGUIN NAMED PITCHER OF THE WEEK
TRAVERSE CITY, MI -- The Frontier League has announced that Traverse City Beach Bums' starting pitcher, Jordan Desguin, has been named this week's Pitcher of the Week.
Jordan made his lone start of the week on June 14th at Wuerfel Park against the River City Rascals, and hurled an absolute gem. He tossed a complete game one-hitter with the lone base knock being a close play at first on an infield single. Desguin had stellar command, striking out eight while walking none as he picked up his fourth win of the season against no losses.
In five appearances this season, the Port Charlotte, Florida native has an earned run average of 2.01. He has struck out 27 batters while only walking ten. He also has Traverse City's lowest opposing batting average at .165. Jordan is in his first season with the Beach Bums after three seasons in the Milwaukee Brewers farm system.
Drafted in the 36th round of the 2015 MLB draft out of Florida Gulf Coast University, he was the starting pitcher for the Pioneer League in their All-Star Game against the Northwest League in 2016. Reaching as high as single-A, with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, Desguin had an affiliated record of 10-9 with 167 strikeouts. Jordan will make his next start on Wednesday against the Washington Wild Things.
After an off day on Monday, the Beach Bums continue their nine game road trip with a three-game series against the first place, Washington Wild Things. Chase Cunningham gets the start for Washington while Justin Finan goes for the Beach Bums. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm and Tom Willms will have the call, starting with the Budweiser pregame show, at 6:45pm. You can listen along from anywhere in the world at TCBeachBums.com
