LuisDiaz.jpgOn Monday Greenville Drive right-handed pitcher Luis Diaz was named the South Atlantic League’s Pitcher of the Week for the period of June 24-30.

In two starts during the period the Venezuelan native went 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA, 0.69 WHIP and 15 strikeouts over 13 innings of work.

Against the Charleston RiverDogs Diaz lasted six innings after allowing just one run on five hits and two walks, then followed it up with a dominating effort over Kannapolis five days later.

Versus the Intimidators he retired the first fifteen batters he faced and allowed just one hit and one walk over seven innings, mowing down nine batters by strikeout.

Diaz had spent some time in extended spring training before joining the Drive at the end of May and has since gone 3-4 with a 3.38 ERA in seven appearances (six starts).

He joins Mookie Betts (Batter of the Week, May 6-12) as the only Drive players to earn weekly honors in the SAL this season.
