After losing two aces to promotions the Fireflies still have some strong arms. Thomas Szapucki was named South Atlantic League pitcher of the week on Monday.
The 21-year-old out of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida had a season high 10 strikeouts last week in his second start for Columbia. He was a fifth round pick in the 2015 draft by the Mets.
The lefty is the second Firefly to earn a league award this season.
