The Thunder and the Eastern League announced that RHP Ronald Herrera was named the Pitcher of the Week for the week of April 25th – May 1st.
Herrera’s recognition comes after he threw eight no-hit innings as part of the second nine-inning no-hitter in franchise history on Tuesday night. He allowed two walks, hit one batter, and struck out five against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in his lone start of the week.
The 20-year-old right-hander, acquired in the off-season by the Yankees in exchange for INF Jose Pirela, is 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA this season. He’s allowed seven hits and four walks in 21 innings with the Thunder this season, striking out 20 Eastern League batters.
