Another Columbus Catfish player has been recognized by Minor League Baseball. Catfish pitcher Heath Rollins was today named the South Atlantic League pitcher of the week.
Rollins celebrated his 22nd birthday in grand fashion last week, picking up two victories to give him the most wins (six) among undefeated pitchers in the South Atlantic League. The right-hander began his birthday celebration on Tuesday by giving up just one earned run on six hits and striking out five in the Catfish's 4-2 win over Charleston. In a 4-2 win over Savannah, Rollins allowed one unearned run and struck out five without giving up a walk. His minuscule 1.04 ERA is second in the league.
Wade Townsend was named SAL pitcher of the week back on April 22.
