According to Lynn Worthy, the Eastern League has named right-handed starting pitcher, Darin Gorski, as their pitcher of the week for the time period of August 19th to the 25th.

It was a two-start week for Gorski that helped solidify his case to earn the honor. He worked 14.2 innings in those two appearances, compiling a 1-0 record and allowing three runs, 10 strikeouts, and four walks during that time. His ERA in these two starts ended up coming in at 1.84.

This performance was a great one for the left-hander, but it falls in line with what he’s been doing since he joined the B-Mets rotation. In 12 starts that have spanned 66.2 innings pitched, Gorski is 4-1 with a 1.89 ERA, allowing just 39 hits and 22 walks, while striking out 59 hitters.

Fellow pitchers like Noah Syndergaard and Logan Verrett have been grabbing a lot of the headlines up in Binghamton as the B-Mets prepare for a playoff run, but it’s been the solid performance of Gorski that has truly solidified the starting rotation for manager Pedro Lopez. Through four August starts, he is 2-0 with a 1.91 ERA, walking eight and striking out 18 in 28.1 innings pitched.

Congratulations to Darin on this honor! Let’s hope he can continue dominating the opposition once the postseason gets underway.

    Matt, one correction: as your picture shows, Darin is a left-hander, a rare trait in a Met minor league pitcher. Gorski has been nothing short of terrific since he joined the B-Met staff in the mid season. He could be an important piece for Binghamton in the post season.

    Thanks for the assist, John. I appreciate it! He truly has been fantastic in Binghamton and he’ll definitely be an integral part of their playoff run.
