St. Lucie Mets righty, Josh Prevost,  won this week’s Pitcher of the Week award in the Florida State League.

Prevost, 26, had one start this past week but it was a really good one.

The big righty pitched a complete game shutout retiring 26 in a row after allowing a leadoff single in the first. His line in that game was 9 IP, H, 9 K. He threw a complete game shutout on only 97 pitches.

For the season, Prevost has posted a 3.50 ERA in 54 innings at St. Lucie. He has 44 strikeouts in those 54 innings but he is still trying to re-gain his stuff.

It is Prevost’s first season since returning from Tommy John Surgery. Prevost has given up just five runs in his last 35.1 IP at St. Lucie mixed in with a bad start in Binghamton. He was a fourth round pick back in 2014 out of Seton Hall but injuries have slowed him down from moving faster through the ranks.

In all likelihood, Prevost will probably move up to Binghamton permanently at some point this summer and may get a few games at Las Vegas before the season ends.
