Indians’ Steven Brault Named IL Pitcher of the Week for Second Time

The Indianapolis Indians, in conjunction with the International League, announced that left-hander Steven Brault was named the IL Pitcher of the Week (Aug. 7-13). The weekly honor is Brault’s second of the season (also: May 15-21) and is the fifth overall for the Tribe in 2017. Right-hander Tyler Glasnow (July 24-30), first baseman/right fielder Joey Terdoslavich (July 13-16) and first baseman Jason Rogers (May 15-21) have all received weekly honors as well.

Brault, 25, did not allow a run while earning two wins for the Tribe this past week at home. On Monday, Aug. 7, the southpaw fired seven shutout innings against Buffalo in a 4-0 victory. He allowed three hits, walked two and struck out two on 86 total pitches. His second seven-inning, no-run performance of the week came on Saturday in front of Victory Field’s fifth sellout crowd of 2017. The La Mesa, Calif. native surrendered just two hits and three walks with five punchouts against Syracuse in an 8-2 triumph.

Brault’s 14.0 innings pitched and perfect 0.00 ERA led the IL, and his .106 average against (5-for-47) was third among IL pitchers to have thrown eight-plus frames during the week. On the season, Brault is 10-5 with a league-best 1.94 ERA (26 ER in 120.1 IP) and .199 average against (85-for-428). His two victories at the Vic made him 5-3 with a 0.84 ERA (6 ER in 64.0 IP) in 11 games (10 starts) in the Circle City this season.

His win on Saturday made him the fifth Tribe left-hander since 2005 to win 10 or more games in a single season.

The weekly award is the fourth of Brault’s career.

Indians’ Tyler Glasnow and Josh Bell Named Triple-A All-Stars

2016-06-27-Indians-005

Tyler Glasnow and Josh Bell will represent the Indianapolis Indians in the 2016 Triple-A All-Star Game on July 13 in Charlotte, N.C. The International League roster was announced Wednesday by the league office.

Glasnow, a right-handed pitcher, was rated the Pirates’ No. 1 prospect and No. 14 overall by Baseball America entering the 2016 campaign. This season he’s gone 7-2 with a 1.70 ERA for the Indians, including a recent run of 13 hitless and 20 scoreless consecutive innings streaks. In June, the 6’ 8” hurler has allowed three earned runs in 34 innings to compile a 0.79 ERA. He leads the IL in strikeouts (105) and is second in ERA (1.70).

Bell, a first baseman, is among the top hitters in the International League. He is the league’s active leader in batting average at .316 with Adam Frazier departing for Pittsburgh on June 24. The switch-hitter is also among the IL’s top hitters in RBIs (2nd, 47), OBP (3rd, .402), and slugging percentage (3rd, .521). Baseball America rated him the Pirates’ No. 2 prospect and 38th overall to begin the season.

Thirteen of the 30 roster slots were determined by an equal combination of fan, field staff, and media voting. The remaining 17 openings were awarded by the International League office.

The International League squad will be opposed by the Pacific Coast League’s top performers. The IL has claimed six of the last seven meetings. Columbus’ Chris Tremie will manage the IL club.

The game will be broadcast live on MLB Network, American Forces Network, MiLB.TV and the Triple-A All-Star Game Radio Network beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
