Previous winner

LHP Ryan Yarbrough (6’5 205, 26 in 2018)

2017 statistics with Triple-A Durham: 157 13 IP, 3.43 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, 6.0 BB%, 24.7 K%

In his first season in the organization after arriving from Seattle in the Drew Smyly trade, Yarbrough was very good for Durham, putting himself in a position to reach the majors in 2018. He led the International League in strikeouts and was third in innings. He’s tall and throws a low-90s sinker, although he oddly allowed 20 home runs after only allowing 15 in his career up to that point. His changeup is his second best pitch, and he’s working on his slider.
