Double-A Akron left-hander Ryan Edell was named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week, the league announced today. It is the first Eastern League weekly award in Edell’s career, and the fourth for an Aero this season (Jeanmar Gomez once, Nick Weglarz twice).
Edell was simply magnificent in his two starts this week, first blanking Erie for seven innings last Monday and then firing six scoreless...
