Binghamton Rumble Ponies starter Corey Oswalt was named the Eastern League’s Pitcher of the Week for the week ending August 6th.  Oswalt earned the honor due to one brilliant start against the Trenton Thunder.

In his August 3rd start against the Trenton Thunder, Oswalt threw his first ever complete game and his first ever shutout as a professional.  The game did not appear to be getting off on the right foot with the first two batters of the game singling.  Oswalt rebounded setting down the next 21 straight batters to complete the two-hitter and deliver the Rumble Ponies a win in the first end of the double-header.  In the game, Oswalt walked none and struck out eight.

This complete game was the latest in what has been a terrific season for Oswalt.  In 19 starts, Oswalt is 8-4 with a 2.43 ERA, 1.196 WHIP, and a 7.5 K/9.  on the strength of this season as well as his continued development, Oswalt was recently named MMN‘s 14th best prospect.

This is Oswalt’s second career Pitcher of the Week Award.  He was previously named the New York Penn League Pitcher of the Week for the week ending July 27, 2014.  Coincidentally, Oswalt was named an All Star that season as well.

    Oswalt is in that next batch of Mets starters coming up: Oswalt, Flexen, Molina, Conlon. Not as sexy as the previous starters that came up but can be good if everything falls into place. Flexen has a big start tonight to see if he can be called upon next season on a regular basis. No crazy pressure but it’s an audition.

    While it would be nice to see Flexen pitch better tonight, tonight’s start has no bearing on when he gets to the majors. Perhaps you believe that it will give you a better perspective. But thats just imagination. The kid has only 7 AA starts under his belt. Its clear that he needs some time in AAA. We know he has talent. We know he needs more seasoning in the minors. Neither of those realities will be de-bunked tonight, regardless of what he does. When he reached the majors, and whether that is next year or not will be determined by how he pitches over the full course of the next year, or so. Not by one game.
