Travs’ McCaughan earns honor

Arkansas Travelers pitcher Darren McCaughan was named Texas League Pitcher of the Week for April 4-14 according to League President Tim Purpura.

McCaughan made two starts for the Travs, his first two at the Double-A level and did not allow a run over 12 combined innings. Working six innings in each outing, he allowed a total of seven singles and no walks. McCaughan struck out 14 hitters in his 12 innings. While he did not record a decision, the team went 2-0 in his starts including a 1-0 shutout victory in 10 innings. 

McCaughan was a California League midseason All-Star last year and also earned one League weekly award nod there. The 23-year old was selected by the Mariners in the 12th round of the 2017 draft out of Long Beach State.
